The Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company was founded in 2014 to produce and spread the work of artistic director e choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri.
The kick-off of the Zurich based company was the dance video "Quieta... inquietudine“, which has been awarded with the audience price at the Loikka Dance Film Festival for the 60secondsdance competition in Helsinki in 2016.
The company’s work furthermore includes the creations "Lost & Found", "WAY OUT", "Happening" and the latest creation called IN.QUETA ROOMS premiered in February 2017.
Nunzio Impellizzeri’s artistic work is characterized by some very innovative ways of using space and a language of surprising dynamic. He considers that dance is about personal observations of human behaviour and the ways that behaviour can fit into the social construct. During the creative process he is melting both physical and conceptual aspects, transforming the atmosphere of the performing space.
Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company is the ensemble of fruition and exploration of Nunzio’s ideas with his team of international renowned dancers and collaborators.
The artistic team of Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company strongly believes in a statement found in Todd Lehman’s book "The Streets of Sicily“, where he says that choreographers, like playwrights, have a magic toolbox from which they can build pictures that fascinate, intrigue, and entertain. They can create mirrors that force an audience to take a better look at their lives and at a society and is mechanisms.
The company’s artistic line aims to push the audiences, to surprise them and make them question our social behaviours through a fearless use of intense body language.
