A Set of Timings is a composition played out by two bodies, an architecture and a musical collage. Four primary elements marked the direction of the creation of an environment, a physical-mental state, a relation of events. In this tableaux, the single events follow one after another and are entwined in a musical score comprised of cross-references in constant metamorphosis. The choreography is marked by pauses, bodies at different speeds, elaborations of delays and early arrivals and the results of spontaneity and chance. “Time” is the parameter that creates proximity and continually redraws new geographies and stories between the bodies. Elements, these, that time manages to configure in various ways, in forms that, at any second, can evoke stories, allude to meanings that are disloyal to a sensical narration, but only constant in their transformation. Time changes encounters and connections, thus it shapes the results of the material forms it encounters. It moves like a sculptor with their work. The performance becomes like the experience of flipping through a book with all its material trappings.

After studying at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Claudia Catarzi began her career working with the Ensemble of Micha Van Hoecke. She then went on to dance with companies such as Dorky Park/ Constanza Macras (Berlin), Compagnia Virgilio Sieni, Aldes/ Roberto Castello, Company Blu/ Alessandro Certini and Charlotte Zerbey, En-Knap Group/ Iztok Kovač (Ljubljana), Làszlò Hudi (J.Nadj – Budapest), among others. With choreographer Ambra Senatore, she collaborated from the start of her company work between Italy and France, participating in all of her early works. An essential part of her work, besides improv, is composition in real time. Starting in 2010, she began to work on personal creations — the solo Arrivò Senza Colore won the co-production Sosta Palmizi and Un Giorno, duo with Mariano Nieddù, was finalist for the “Premio Equilibrio 2010” (directed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui). In 2011, she created the solo Qui, Ora, with the support of “Contemporanea Festival / Teatro Metastasio Stabile della Toscana” (Prato) and “Inteatro” (Polverigi, Ancona) – winner of numerous prizes. The solo 40.000 Centimetri Quadrati was selected for “Visionari/Kilowatt 2014”, for “Vetrina Anticorpi XL 2015”, for “Rencontres Chorégrapiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis 2017”, for  “BE Festival/ Birmingham 2017”; and the video promo of the work was a finalist in “IDILL/Charleroi Danses”. Sul Punto debuted at “Romaeuropa /Festival DNA 2013/ The Art Reacts” winning the jury prize “Appunti Coreografici” and the public prize. In November 2014, she debuted with her new work Intorno al Fatto di Cadere at Romaeuropa/DNA. Since 2015, she dances for Sasha Waltz & Guests. She is currently presenting her work at numerous important national and international festivals. For the year of 2017, she was chosen as dancer of the year by Tiago Bartolomeu Costa in the yearbook of dance, ballet and performance, “Jahrbuch 2017 der Tanz – Zeitschrift für Ballett, Tanz und Performance”, with “40.000 Centimetri Quadrati”.
