Cristiana Morganti-Jessica and Me

”Do you want me to dance,

or do you want me to talk?”

In Jessica and Me, the long-standing soloist of the iconic Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal does both with irresistible charm, talent and comic flair. With a shock of black curls, an infectious laugh and a pair of red stilettos, Cristiana Morganti offers us a tantalising glimpse into her career, from her classical ballet training to her fateful meeting with Pina.

This much anticipated solo show is a self-portrait in two voices: her inner self (Cristiana) and her alter-ego (Jessica). Alternating between losing herself in a whirlwind of movement and observing herself with a fierce and unrelenting humour, this is a fascinating exposé on the life of a star dancer – both on and off the stage.

Performed in English.

Duration 70 min. no interval.

“Jessica and Me” is an honest, intelligent, comic tale about an aging dancer still consumed by a lust for life.” -Chris O’Rourke- The Examiner (Dublin Dance Festival 2016)
