Rocío Marano, Argentinian dancer and choreographer based in Berlin since 2014, has a diverse background in physical theatre, martial arts and contemporary dance. She has followed an independent training and studied at the Escola Superior d’Art i Disseny de les Illes Balears in Spain. In addition, Rocío has broadened her knowledge through her studies at the Inter-university Dance Centre HZT in Berlin, where she obtained a Master’s degree in Choreography and a diploma in Ecofeminism from the University of Buenos Aires.
Rocío is attracted by the movement that is generated in the popular terrain of the collective and whose norms extend beyond contemporary dance. Hence her exploratory links with Krump, the Argentinean folkloric dance Malambo, yawning as a somatic voice practice and research on interspecies connections. Embracing the concept of dilettantism, Rocío delves into learning instruments to deepen her connection between dance and music. She experiments with rhythmical movements and improvised lyrics. This allows her to investigate the mental and emotional states that give rise to novel movement patterns, finding a place between order and chaos.
