Post–Show Talk: Sat 21 May “Do you want me to dance, or do you want me to talk?”

In Jessica and Me, the long-standing soloist of the iconic Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal does both with irresistible charm, talent and comic flair. With a shock of black curls, an infectious laugh and a pair of red stilettos, Cristiana Morganti offers us a tantalising glimpse into her career, from her classical ballet training to her fateful meeting with Pina. This much anticipated new solo show is a self-portrait in two voices: her inner self (Cristiana) and her alter-ego (Jessica). She alternates between losing herself in a whirlwind of movement and observing herself with a fierce and unrelenting humour. A fascinating exposé on the life of a star dancer – both on and off the stage. Choreographer / Performer: Cristiana Morganti Production il Funaro | Pistoia | Italia in collaboration with Fondazione I Teatri – Reggio Emilia — Italia.


Supported by the Italian Institute of Culture and the Goethe-Institut Irland, as part of EUNIC Ireland at Dublin Dance Festival
