Camilla says, "In my research project "Closing WIP" I want to reflect on the emptiness and boredom of the continuous lockdowns and work with a specific movement quality that I discovered in my body as a result of the long time spent at home. Stiffness, minimalism, and struggle with space will be the key elements of my dance. I want to work on a staccato quality, on body isolations and on very reduced movements. Additionally, I want to have some daily objects around me as a neutral companion in space. My aim is that the emptiness of the movements will in the end not only say something about this moment of global pandemic but of contemporary life at large."

Born in Italy, she started classical ballet at an early age and then studied at the Iwanson International School of Contemporary Dance in Munich where she graduated in 2017 with a degree in contemporary dance. She then took part in her first independent production, "Flowers of Life", which premiered in Munich in 2017. After some time in Brussels, where she worked on the performance "Carnaval" together with the Black Spot collective, which was shown in May 2019 at the Kunst Festival and on "Digital Metaphors" with the TerazNow Dance Theatre Collective, she moved to Frankfurt am Main where she collaborated with Verena Billinger & Sebastian Schulz for their work "Zeit / Temps".
