THE THOUGHT AND VALERIA’S WORK TODAY
“ FIRST OF ALL THE HUMAN BEING AND HIS SOUL”
Valeria’s work is based on the MEANING, on questions about the meaning of life, its nuances, values, the interior world of emotions. Nothing can be separated from emotions. Her work is a continuous research work to explore feelings of human being through dance. Dance is an instrument for telling the vibrations of souls and pulling the truth of being out of the depths
Valeria’s works on emotions with humility and irony, laying on the personal peculiarities of each of us, on our personal eccentricities and sometimes exasperating them and sometimes turning them into something else.
Valeria loves her work and faces important and committed themes with passion and ease at the same time, with Courage and delicacy, shaking the audience but not invading it, her job always invites the audience TO THINK.
She loves to CREATE, to build performances with dancers and with not dancers too because her work is for everybody wants to work in depth in search of the true movement and therefore of a real sense, not fake. Every movement must tell a story, every movement has a meaning, every breath is full of meaning.
In the creative process Valeria almost never follows a linear process, does not always start from meaning, from music, from space, her creative process is free and
new every time but the creative path always leads to a SENSE.
