She lives in Berlin where she continues her artistic research.

Known for her creative approach to performance and mentorship, Cecilia is fascinated by different forms of art and different mediums for artistic expression, and often creates interdisciplinary work, pursuing the idea of deepening the connection and relationship with the public through music and bodily expression. While music is her primary language, hers is a dialogue of sounds and silences, a dialogue of the body with space.

In her journey as a human being and an artist, themes of interest emerged, culminating in her meeting with the artist Daniela Marcozzi and the violinist and founder of Mindful Music Making, Alina Pogostkina. These two meetings inspired Cecilia to conceive her personal project: The Lab of Joy. A laboratory, in fact, that researches and develops means of expression that are aimed at the unfolding qualities of one’s human expression and soul.

Her passion for physical theater, contemporary music and the visual arts is shown in several projects in which she took part as a soloist and guest musician. ‘On Urgency’ by Daniela Marcozzi Contemporary Theater, Klangwerkstattfestival für neue Musik with Sylvia Hinz and Das Festival Ensemble. Contemporary Donaueschingen Musiktage for the Premiere of the work of composer Wojtek Blecharz Symphony No. 3 for 200 wireless speakers and 5 performers.
