NUNZIO IMPELLIZZERI DANCE COMPANY
The Hellenistic statue “The Dancing Satyr” – devoid of arms and a leg, with eyes of white alabaster – inspired choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri to ask himself how these imperfections can generate so much beauty. Its beauty does not reflect Classical perfection, but rather the dynamic, illusionistic Baroque compositions that are re-emerging in daily life.
We exist in a present wherein the perception of beauty is in constant flux; in CORPO BAROCCO Nunzio places the body and its expressions – as natural beauty – as the central focus and the dancers embody a journey in which the defect, the anomaly, and the exception – key concepts in Baroque art – become synonymous with beauty and poetry.
“…Nunzio Impellizzeri develops the 60-minute evening that leaves the audience almost as breathless as the extremely demanding dancers. But during the one hour, one succumbs to a spell, a fascination that one feels almost physically. An intense experience!”
