Marta is a Glasgow based professional dancer and performer.
Her interests lie in a multidisciplinary approach to performance, which recently has been focussing on how contemporary dance meets theatre and music (sound and voice) to enhance each other potential of communication and expression.
Marta often uses Improvisation in her own practice and teaching, aiming to find the individual behind the form and aesthetic, trying to explore, experiment and challenge without loosing the integrity and honesty of the self.
Marta was born in Verona, where she combined her dance training with Humanities studies in Literature and Philosophy at the University of Verona. She graduated with a first class honours degree at London Contemporary Dance School and joined Scottish Dance Theatre as an apprentice for the season 2011-2012. Since then Marta has been freelancing working for choreographers and companies around the UK, performing nationally and internationally.
Thanks to Creative Scotland Professional Development fund, Marta has given the opportunity to investigate and deepen her interest in CI, Improvisation and Voice Work over the summer.
