Jadi Carboni

Geb. 1981; Choreografin, Body-Workerin, Tänzerin, Yogalehrerin

Jadi is a choreographer, dancer, body-worker, practitioner of various performing arts and healing disciplines, in which movement and sound are the medium for communication, discovery, and creation. Her choreographic and physical practice is inspired by the practice of natural principles. She perceives the body as a continuum between the physical, emotional, and intellectual dimensions. Jadi graduated from the National Dance Academy in Rome, won a scholarship at the Venice Biennale under Carolyn Carlson, and continued her studies at the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam. She currently obtained a Masters in choreography (2020) at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz (HZT) Berlin.

Jadi has danced throughout Europe, South America, and the USA, with Kirstie Simson, Kathleen Hermersdorf, Julyen Hamilton, Scottish National Theatre, Djalma Primordial Science, and Sasha Waltz.

As choreographer, we recall the award-winning dance video “Gravity Well”, the EU-funded artistic research project “On the Way to Immortality”, in collaboration with Franco Rustichelli, professor of physic in Ancona Italy. She works as a choreographer for the director Barbara Wachendorff to realize Mydentity (2016) and Youtopia (2019) presented at the Sommerblut Festival. Youtopia is an interactive, interdisciplinary theater project, nominated for the Kölner Tanz- und Theaterpreise 2019.

In addition to her work as a choreographer and dancer, Jadi is a certified Yoga and Pilates teacher, Sound Therapist, and a prize-winning actress (” El Ray,” Barcelona Film Festival). She also practices Qi gong, Aikido, Contact Improvisation, Body-Mind Centering, voice training, Sound therapy, Reiki, and Zen Therapy.

From the breath, the movement arises, I follow the rhythm of my heart. Smelling, touching, hearing, I dance through each moment of my life. What truly vibrates in my heart, will move, transform and leading me through life.
