Andrea Costanzo Martini was born and raised in Italy where he received his first education in contemporary dance and ballet. In 2006 he joined the Batsheva Dance Company and later, between 2010 and 2014, he danced with the Cullberg Ballet and the Inbal Pinto and A. Pollack Dance Company. Since 2013 he is creating and performing his own works.
He received the first prize for dance and Choreography at the International Tanz Solo Competition in Stuttgart 2013 and was awarded several prizes for the two solo works “What Happened in Torino” and “Occhio di Bue”. Between 2013 and today Andrea focused on smaller scale creations such as Trop, VoglioVoglia, SCARABEO (selected by Aerowaves Festival 2018). More recently he started collaborating with established companies such as Balletto di Roma and Balletto Teatro di Torino creating the works Intro and Balera. Andrea’s research in dance focuses in both extreme physicality and theatricality of the performance act and explores the power balance that is created during a show between the dancers and the spectators. Always filled with humour and supported by a wide range of skills, Martini’s work questions and plays with the expectations of the dance medium.
Trained in both ballet and contemporary technique , since 2007 Andrea is also a Gaga instructor and leads dance workshops around the world.
