Residency presentation

Dans

 (English below)

Alessandro Schiattarella er født i Napoli, Italien. I 2000 blev han uddannet ved Rudra Béjart School, Lausanne. Gennem tiden har han arbejdet med flere internationalt anerkendte dansekompagnier som Béjart Ballet Lausanne, Ballet Du Grand Theatre de Geneve, Konzert Theater Bern, EastWest Theater Company Sarajevo, Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Da Motus Fribourg og The Ballett Basel.

I 2017 optrådte han med sin solo ‘Altrove’ på den anerkendte internationale platform Aerowaves. Senere samme år koreograferede han stykket ‘STRANO’, som undersøger og udfordrer begrebet ”normalitet” og kravet til dansernes kropslige perfektion, både som et krav fra industrien og internt i danseverdenen.  

Hans seneste arbejde beskæftiger sig med at undersøge ”forskelligheder” – kropslige, selv-identificerende og kulturelle. Efter at have været splittet mellem kategorierne ’handicappet’ og ’normal’ gennem sin karriere, sætter han nu spørgsmålstegn ved brugen af kategorier.

Fri entré.
________

Alessandro Schiattarella was born in Napoli, Italy. He graduated in 2000 from the Rudra Béjart School, Lausanne. During the next 15 years he worked with many internationally renowned dance companies, both free-lance and repertoire, such as: Béjart Ballet Lausanne, Ballet Du Grand Theatre de Geneve, Konzert Theater Bern, EastWest Theater Company Sarajevo, Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Da Motus Fribourg and The Ballett Basel.

After his dance solo ‘Altrove’ was successfully performed 2014 at the Roxy Basel, Alessandro was selected to present it on the outstanding international platform Aerowaves Twenty17. In 2015, he created his first full evening solo-piece: Tell Me Where It Is. At this point he already focused, if still from an autobiographical perspective, on less evident disabilities.
2017 he choreographed the ‘inclusive’ group-piece ‘STRANO’, which questioned and challenged the topic of ‘normality' and bodily perfection among dancers. This, both as a dictate from the industry and as a self-imposed stress within the dancing community. 

His current research deals with exploring 'differences' – physical, self-identifying and cultural ones. During his career, he had found himself caught between 'disabled' and 'normal' categories, he now questions the use of any such category.
