Marina Donatone, dancer, choreographer and educator, was born in Rome in 1993 and trained at the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy and La Sapienza University of Rome. As a dancer she has worked in Italy and abroad with various artists including Virgilio Sieni, Jacopo Miliani and Csaba Molnár. In her works, she seeks a body in the making that gives itself to the choreographic system as active matter, working and being worked from the relationships in which it fits, carrying with it its own irreducible composition. As an author she has been supported by organisations including Mattatoio di Roma, Lavanderia a Vapore, Santarcangelo Festival, Teatro India - Teatro di Roma, Sín Arts Culture Centre Budapest, C.U.R.A. Umbria and Short Theatre. In 2020 and 2021, in collaboration with Short Theatre, she was part of the internationalisation project for curator artists Boarding Pass Plus Dance. She also works in the teaching of movement for children and cultural mediation. From 2020 to 2022, she curated and led education projects for adults and children at the Mattatoio di Roma and currently collaborates with the educational departments of Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana and Musei Civici di Venezia.
