Elisa Zuppini is a choreographer and dance maker originally from Italy. She graduated from SNDO- School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam, where she is currently based.
Started dancing at a young age, Elisa was always driven by an unceasing passion for the art form of dance and its generative philosophical aspect. Today, her choreographic research articulates around notions of relational movement and materiality in relation to the body and its affective dimensions. She is interested in the body as a transformative technology through which we can potentially access new (or lost) perceptions of reality, and those of relationality.
In 2016 she was awarded as Young Talent in Choreography from OpenFlr, Florence (IT), in 2018 she won the scholarship for Danceweb residency program at Impulstanz in Vienna (AT). Since February 2019 she is one of the supported artists by the dance company ICK Amsterdam and in the same year she became one of the members of Jacuzzi, a convergence of Amsterdam-based choreographers. Since 2018 Elisa has been collaborating on a long-term basis with the Dancer and Performer Federica Dalla Pozza, Artist and Dramaturg Bruno Listopad and Dj and Producer James Whipple (M.E.S.H.).
