Vita

Alessandro Giaquinto was born in Scandiano (Italy) and grew up in Reggio Emilia. At the age of ten he received his first ballet training at the Progetto Danza in Scandiano. From 2011 to 2016 he continued his education at the John Cranko Schule, from which he graduated in July 2016. In 2012 Marco Goecke and Louis Stiens created the role of Gene in the Coproduction Dancer in the Dark with the Schauspiel Stuttgart for him.

In the 2016/17 season he joined the Stuttgart Ballet as an apprentice, one season later he became a member of the Corps de ballet. At the beginning of the 2021/22 season he was promoted to Demi-Soloist.

Alessandro Giaquinto is also creating own choreographies. Since 2019 he is closely working together with the artist Chiara Bugatti. As Team they developed a performance named “REHEARSING BRUTALITY UNTIL IT IS TOTALLY DESTROYED” which premiered in Bunkervik in Brescia (Italy) in September 2021.
