Silvia Marazzi, (1991) Italian performer and choreographer based in Brussels. Her artistic reflection is about human interference with the processes of nature, technology, globalization, identity, borders.

Subsequently, she integrated her formation with several masterclasses in Berlin, Amsterdam, Montreal and Belgium (Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Peter Jasko, Jan Fabre, Marie Chouinard, Tero Saarinen, Hofesh Shechter, Ultima Vez..)
Silvia began her career as an independent artist in Milan and contributed to several European festivals (Nevsheir Kapadokya, Turkey; Trakai, Lithuania; Batumi, Georgia). In 2017 after performing as a dancer in “Rizoma-after the end” by Sharon Fridman, she left for Montréal, where she worked with renowned choreographers and for several independent artistic projects between Ottawa and New York. In 2018 she moved to Brussels where she has collaborated with various inspiring companies and artists. In 2020 she co-founded the collective Koròs with Rachele Gusella and Elana Rillh with the performance ‘If my body could speak’.
Researching around dialogue, perception and sensation in the bodily representation, her personal work (Stayrs, When the ice melted, Vertical Thoughts) intimate and interactive is characterized by the hybridity between movement experimentation, visual art, architecture, language, technology and theory.
