As an artist, Caterina Rago's work is full of raw physicality feeling and she seeks to embody human
emotions in movement. Dance creates a sense of vulnerability, allowing performers to offer
and viewers to receive. Caterina Rago wants to bring self-awareness and push boundaries,
depicting messages of love, hope and courage throughout her work.
