He worked with director Federico Fellini in the movies "Ginger and Fred" and "La nave va". In 1987 he founded his own dance company in Vienna – Tanz Company Gervasi – and collaborated with over 300 international performers, producing more than 50 productions in Austria and abroad (incl.

He was a guest choreographer for different companies and theatres: P.L.Dance Company, Bühnenwerkstatt-Company Graz, Ballet of National Theatre of Saarland (DE), for the Vienna State Opera Ballet and for the Ballet-School of the Vienna State Opera. He received several awards for his choreographies from the Austrian Ministry of Culture. In 2003 he received the award for best production. From 2011-2016 his productions were presented in the frame of ImPulsTanz Special and ImPulsTanz Festival, Vienna. In the last years he engaged in co-productions with the Academy of Fine Arts and Tanzquartier, Vienna.
