Her performance in Kan’s work "Oracle and Enigma in Paris 2011 was described by Ann Moradian: "[Margherita was] so fully present in the work that I found my reality suspended as I journeyed with her into hers. The commitment to the moment managed to brush aside the questioning my mind is prone to (of meaning, content, form, construction...), and brought me back to the simple and undeniable reality of existence, where judgement has no role."

MARGHERITA TISATO started studying dance in Italy at the age of 8. She delved into Humprey-Limon and classical techniques paired with a deep work rooted in Maria Fux's dance-therapy studies. Margherita taught dance classes to children and adults, including diversely able individuals, psychiatric patients and court involved population from 2001 through 2006. In New York since 2006, she dances with Sokolow Theater Dance Ensemble, Dances for Isadora and independent choreographers while studying Butoh, Humphrey-Limon and contemporary techniques. She started training with Vangeline of Vangeline Theater in 2007, and was a principal dancer form 2008 until 2017. Margherita also studied with other prominent Butoh Masters, such as Katsura Kan, Yumiko Yoshioka, Mari Osanai, Atsushi Takenuchi and Diego Pinonamong others, making Butoh an integral part of her artistic and spiritual practice. It's her mission to embody a dance that transcends technique, and can open the portals to other dimensions.
