Gabriella is a dancer and a movement practitioner whose work investigates the relation between dance and musical, visual or linguistic environments in the context of live performances. She has a contemporary and classic ballet background coming from her training at the international choreographic centre Opus Ballet (Florence, Italy). Subsequently she has continued her journey following and drawing inspiration from different techniques and methods:  Axis Syllabus (Frey Faust), Instant Composition (Julyen Hamilton), Contact improvisation and Partnering, Flying low and Passing through (David Zambrano),  Bodyweather (Min Tanaka), Ferus Animi/Terra Nova (Tomislav English) among others. After obtaining a BA degree in Eastern philosophies, history and cultures at the University of Bologna, she's looked to expand her knowledge and enrich her physical vocabulary through the practice of Yoga, Tai'Chi and Ci-Gong disciplines; Brazilian Capoeira and the ancient Indian martial Art Kalarypaiattu.

In the last few years she's been based in London (UK) where she worked with Exzeb Dance Company, RuN Collective, Alleyne Dance, collaborated with the photographer/film-maker Chung Wang and Artists from different backgrounds.

Recently she co-founded Bambula, an artistic project  that adopts dance and physical theatre as primary instruments of expression but that aims to celebrate the union of varied Art forms and their spontaneous,creative purposes.
