I am a German-Italian performer and performance studies theorist based in Hamburg, Germany. After studying Intercultural European and American Studies (majoring in "social documentary photography") at the universities Halle/ Saale and Macquarie Sydney, I did a Masters program in Performance Studies at the University of Hamburg. My doctoral research was accompanied by a.pass (advanced performance and sceneography studies) and awarded with "magna cum laude" from the University of Hamburg. In October 2016 I was appointed to a professorship for aesthetics at MSH University of Applied Sciences and Medical University Hamburg.
