The NUNZIO IMPELLIZZERI DANCE COMPANY was founded in 2014 to produce and promote the work of artistic director and choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri.
The purpose of the Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company is to offer audiences unique experiences and perspectives in the performing arts. The incisiveness of dance and body language challenges, surprises and moves the audience with its ability to dissect and question social behaviour.
Nunzio's background in the visual arts plays an important role in his creations: his studies in art history, life drawing, sculpture and costume design deeply influence the way he creates his work. After graduating in Fine Arts in Sicily, he realised that dance was closest to his nature and the most suitable artistic medium to paint, shape and transform space. His artistic research is characterised by a strong and dynamic physicality, captivating images and an innovative use of space. Observing human behaviour within the social construct, he fuses physical and conceptual aspects to transform the atmosphere of the performance space into a space open to dialogue, strongly promoting an inclusive society. Nunzio Impellizzeri's artistic goal is a commitment to collaboration, curiosity, innovation and the concept of community.
The Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company works closely with internationally renowned dancers and collaborators. Recognised for the excellence of its performers and the versatility of its choreography, the company's work has been presented in theatres and at international festivals in Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Italy, Finland, Denmark, Chile, Spain, North and Central America.
For Nunzio Impellizzeri, dance, like all other art forms, is a powerful medium for dialogue that promotes and raises awareness of diversity. Dance is an infinite enrichment for the culture and spirit of people.
The Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company is reliant on many talented artists to bring its audience high quality productions.
