Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
Based in Berlin and co-founder of Motimaru Dance Company since 2010, Tiziana is a performing artist, choreographer and dancer specialized in 'butoh art', dramaturgy of movement, and dance composition. B.A. in Performing Arts, 5 years in Japan of intensive study and work as a dancer, stage assistant, translator with Yoshito Ohno, legendary master, and son of the co-founder of the Japanese Butoh dance, Kazuo Ohno. Later she has done fieldwork research on Eastern Dances in Japan, India, Nepal, Bali. In those travels, she experienced the cultural/artistic aspect of dance and also its primitive/sacral, social, psychological aspects. Her Spectrum of body-mind research has expanded further through Levine's psychology of trauma's healing and the T.R.E. (Trauma/Tension Release Exercise Method), of which she is a Certified Provider. As a dance coach, she uses a wide encompassed method that goes from 'butoh' to dance, theatre, puppetry, robot and embodied practices. Her work is focused on the movement behind dance, the dance itself and, in its extension, in the research of who we are in this life and how to cherish it.
"ART HAS ANCIENT ROOTS. DIGGING INTO SUCH ORIGINS WITH RESPECT AND INNOVATION IS CRUCIAL. IT REQUIRES DISCIPLINE, SACRIFICES, TIME, BLOOD, A PINCH OF CRAZINESS AND PASSION. AS WE BECOME CRAZY WHEN WE ARE IN LOVE, WE MUST LOVE WHAT WE DO. NO BOOKS WILL WORK BUT TRIALS, CLIMBS AND FALLS. THIS JOURNEY IS WITHIN. THE FORM WILL APPEAR. THAT! T.L.
