Francesca G

She is a master of making poke bowls and salads but she eats chips, piadina and pizza everyday. She loves singing, doing karaoke and pretending she is a great singer! Her artistic background has structured over time between Europe and Australia, through the study and research of different practices and techniques. After 7 years in Sydney, working as a dance artist for the company Twisted Element, she gained experience in immersive, interactive contemporary dance theatre, performing three full length productions across numerous theatres in Sydney and in New South Wales. Her style is characterised by elements of breath work, qigong, and yoga, with elements of dynamic floorwork, release technique and travelling phrases that focus on the importance of weight transfer, space, body awareness and mindfulness. Francesca whilst working as a freelance choreographer, dance artist and director of Interchange Dance Project, she is also the founder of FreeForm, a series of workshops, retreats and events that combine art, movement and wellness across Europe and Australia. She likes to chase the sun, nature, and untouched beaches. In her free time you can catch her dancing on her roller skates, rolling, twisting, and sliding on the floor and laughing for no reason with her besties. If you see her thinking, it means she is elaborating a dance piece in her mind!

What do you have for breakfast in the morning?

I like to eat porridge with half banana, raspberry, coconut, natural peanut butter, and chocolate chips. I usually drink black coffee without sugar.

What is the first thing you do every morning to start your day the best way?

Have a warm shower.

What would you write on a billboard in the centre of your city?

Play, feel and love.

Do you have rituals that help you feel more confident with yourself?

My morning ritual: have a shower, make a celery juice, do some movement or a short workout and write down my goals or intentions of the day. In general, I dedicate some time to my crafts and passions, such as dancing, roller skating, yoga. It allows me to connect to my body and extern what I hold inside me.

What comes to your mind when you think of the word ‘success’?

Perseverance, courage and hard work.

If you were invited to speak at a conference and you didn't have to talk about your work, what would you talk about?

I would talk about quality of life, society and its labels, and travel.

Is there anything you believe in that other people find crazy?

Yes, my way of thinking outside the box and following my intuitions.

What human characteristic most appeals to you?


Three people you would invite for dinner if you had the chance and why.

Brad Pitt, Pina Bausch, Battisti. I would enjoy Brad Pitt's presence and admire his fascination. With Pina Bausch I would talk about her art and her process. With Battisti I would ask him to talk about the meaning of some of the songs and ask him to sing them.

Do you tend to choose courage or comfort?

Courage, jumping into unknown waters, and don’t really have the full control of what it’ll be. Courage makes you strong, independent and free.

If you could change your job for a day, what would you become?

A wellness/movement retreat organiser.
