Roberta Pennisi, a creative and multitalented artist, is the most awaited protagonist of the final show of the Ca’ Foscari Short Film Festival 2016.
Her personal path is influenced by different styles and characterized by the constant search for original expressive forms. Her oriental dance shows are among her most famous performances, in which she beautifully interprets the multi-shaped melodies of Arabic dance through the movements of her body. Her aerial silk exhibitions, in which she paints acrobatic figures in the air while hanging from a special fabric, suspended between sky and earth, are stunning. Lights in motion provide her professional and spectacular LED and Fire show, in which she combines the elements of light with music and colours, offering a breathtaking performance.
