Daniela, Senior Producer

“I am fascinated by Upswing’s work because of the unique projects they produce and deliver to reach a wide and diverse audience, exploring and expanding the possibilities of the circus artform. In my career, I have worked within many different art forms and with cross-disciplinary artists producing exciting new work, and Upswing seemed the perfect match to continue working in an environment where talent, creativity, diversity, inclusivity and wellbeing are nurtured and celebrated”.

Daniela has worked in the arts for over 25 years, both in Italy and the UK, in a variety of roles within arts organisations covering a variety of disciplines (performance, theatre, festivals, poetry and spoken word), managing organisations with a focus on finances, funding, HR and strategic planning. She has devised, produced, toured and delivered cross-disciplinary projects with a diverse range of partners including the National Portrait Gallery, Tate Modern and the Royal Opera House. She has worked for organisations such as the Thames Festival Trust, Apples and Snakes, Poetry London, SPILL Festival, Peepolykus and the National Theatre.
