Daniela Marcozzi

Marcozzi Contemporary Theater (MCT) is a physical theater company based in Berlin and founded in 2015 by the performance artist, theater trainer, researcher and former biologist Daniela Marcozzi. Thus far, MCT has realized about 12 ensemble and solo performances that have toured internationally and has collaborated with many visual artists, dancers and musicians. The artistic language of the company emerges from the dialogue between different disciplines, including the body-voice training of Grotowski's research, physical theater, contemporary dance, corporeal mime, clown, vocal techniques and more. The core practice of MCT rests in urgency, understood as a source of unconditional energy, a driving force necessary to express oneself in order to survive on a biological, cultural, artistic and political level.
