Paolo Cingolani


My artistic journey is one that interweaves the dimensions of self-knowledge with those of theater and performance. Rooted in the art world, in performance making, my work radiates far-reaching implications that extend to the sphere of personal growth and self-discovery.

At the very core of my artistic philosophy is a belief in the transformative potential of the present moment. The raw immediacy of this approach not only captivates but also resonates with audiences, inviting them to step beyond the realm of mere spectators and become active participants in the unfolding narrative.

For more than two decades, I have immersed myself in the fluidity of dance improvisation and the nuances of instant composition. In parallel, I delved into the world of contemporary dance and choreography, sculpting my skills with unwavering dedication. At the same time, I cultivated disciplines such as Qi Gong and Tai-Ji Quan, nurturing both body and mind on a daily basis.
Over the years (and through continued practice) these different disciplines have converged into a seamless tapestry. Dance represents a transformative practice that transcends personal boundaries and manifests in the performative act, while Tai-Ji sustains the life base, nourishing the body, mind, and the art-making itself.

My work is a tree with many branches and roots; my role as an improvisation teacher is one of them. As part of my classes and workshops, I have had the privilege of sharing my passion in various schools and institutions throughout Europe.

With each movement, I paint stories; with each step, I travel deep into the landscape of the self. My place is a stage, my language is made of movements and words, and the masterpiece is an original fusion of art and personal evolution.

Know yourself
to make art.




Video Collection

My personal interest is focused on the video-dance language to create short films that touch the dance, the human relations, and the symbolism of both as well. Most of my projects are self-produced.

Allen's Line Company

Since 2012 I'm part of Allen’s Line Company of the director and poet Julyen Hamilton. The central theme is the work with dance, space, text and voice orchestrating all and each of these elements and doing it all on the fly as an instant composition in performance. Letting these areas of expression be made and housed all together, their individual qualities constantly interacting at different levels, weaving a whole, multi layered expression.
Allen’s Line presented its pieces in various theaters and festivals all around Europe.
