Andrea Salustri comes from Rome, where he learned contact juggling, fire manipulation, and has been working as a street artist. Since 2008 he has been learning piano as an autodidact. In 2013 he graduated cum laude in Philosophy at La Sapienza University in Rome, then decided to move to Berlin to pursue an education in contemporary dance. He first completed the Dance Intensive program at Tanzfabrik Berlin, and successively studied dance and choreography at HZT Berlin University. Andrea’s interest grows in the edges between juggling, dance and music. Where does the manipulation of an object become a dance piece rather than a juggling act? What happens if a certain dance quality of the body produces a specific kind of manipulation of an object? Or if the manipulation of an object is functional to produce specific sounds? Shifting the focus and the context of a piece challenge and transform its identity, and this is an extremely interesting and productive place.
