Barbara Berti

Born in Bologna and resident in Berlin, Barbara Berti is a dancer and choreographer. After initial training as a graphic designer, she moved into the performing arts, working with artists, performers and dancers such as Judith Seng, Tino Seghal, Gabi Schilling and Isabelle Schad. At the same time, she developed her own artistic key in contemporary dance, developing a personal choreographic language with the help of hybrid disciplines such as instant composition, body-mind centring, meditation and contact improvisation.
In her creations, a key aspect is research into kinaesthetic empathy and the transmission of the performer’s physical experience in a strong interaction with the audience.
In 2014, she won the jury prize at the 100° Berlin festival with I am a shape, in a shape, doing a shape, selected in 2016 for the Vetrina italiana della Giovane Danza d’Autore (Italian Showcase of Young Dance).
From 2016 to 2019 she has been supported by TIR Danza.
