Cinzia Grande (Co-founder Teatro Maner Manush)
A gifted actor and costume designer/builder, Cinzia has an extensive background in intercultural theatre, studying dance, singing and martial art teachers and receiving a degree in Oriental Theatre, followed by study in India focusing on classical chanting and folk and religious music. She then performed with the mystic itinerant musicians Baul of Bengal. Her special field of theatrical research is the relationship between rituals and the body, and she also researches the ethnomusical use of voice in theatre. A professional performer in the Commedia dell ‘arte, Cinzia studied masks and techniques of International Institute of Commedia dell’Arte. She co-founded the MANER MANUSH theatre group with Andrea Lattari to make explorations into a visual approach to theatre through images and painting, and several of their performances have been presented at international festivals. Through theatre, she tries to wind historical and traditional human roots together, between western and oriental techniques and images, seeking new waves of expressions in an anthropological vision of performing arts
