Alessandra Corti - Dancer, choreographer and dance teacher.
Alessandra worked for over 20 years in several German state theaters, Bremer Theater, Oldenburgisches Staatstheater, Staatstheater Mainz and in the free scene.

Along her dance career, Alessandra cultivated and developed her choreographic signature characterized by a sensible, fragile and extreme accurate body language.

Alessandra created pieces for companies, such as tanzmainz and BallettCompagnie Oldenburg, young audience and solo works.
Collaborating with the video artist Andreas J. Etter she produced two short films, “Kokkola/Coccola” (September 2020) during her Residency in Absence by Dance All Year Long Kokkola, Finland, and “About me” supported by the ministry of science and culture Rheinland-Pfalz, (March 2021).
