Salvatore has been part of the ballet ensemble of the Pfalztheater in Kaiserslautern, in Germany since 2011. Here he worked for the directors Stefano Giannetti, Elena Iglesias Galán, Katrin Hall and currently James Sutherland.


In addition to his career as a performing artist, Salvatore Nicolosi also developed further as a dance choreographer. After completing his training, he accepted choreographic assignments for several academies in Italy. In Germany he expanded his engagement with courses and workshops in dance and choreography. His works have been shown in art galleries, fashion shows and galas in Germany, including Hamburg, Dortmund and Frankfurt, but also in his home country Italy in Catania, Turin and Florence. He was also able to work as a choreographer in pieces such as Farben and Begegnungen in creations at the Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern.


Salvatore's choreographies are flexible and versatile. He likes to play with the spatial conditions, the acoustics and the effects of light. Salvatore likes to work with dancers, fashion designers, composers, photographers and visual artists who turn his performance into unique experiences. With his creations, Salvatore always tries to connect the community around him, to inspire them and to let them participate in the experience.
