Whilst training, I had the opportunity to perform in works by Rachel de la Nieta, Steve Paxton, Matteo Fargion , M.Gabrielle Rotie. It was an amazingly enriching journey and an important meeting platform, as I found a family of friends and fellow artists with whom I am currently still collaborating.Elisa Vassena
