Maria F. Scaroni​ is a dance artist. She interprets choreographic works, creates dances and hosts dance workshops. Trained independently, moved to Berlin in 2004, where she works as a freelance dancer performing/creating with Jess Curtis, Jeremy Wade, Frank Willens, Tino Sehgal, Venia Rovisco, Hannah Hegenscheidt, Wilhelm Groener, (a.o.). Since 2011 Maria collaborates with Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods, (Until Our Hearts Stop, Sketches/Notebook, with its follow-up initiative Supernova, and Built To Last), sharing with her and part of the Berlin dance community the commitment to improvisation as a performance event (City Lights, Auf den Tisch!, Politics of Ecstasy). Scaroni’s choreographic works focus on the process of collaboration, play with durational experiences and are featured by a crossbreeding between performance, choreography and installation. Maria teaches in Berlin’s University HZT and is involved in developing independent training programs (in Berlin, P.O.R.C.H. and ROAR) researching the body as material. She holds a Masters degree in Italian Modern Literature, with a thesis on education and dance.
