DESIGN AND IDEATION BY NEW DANCE DRAMA
DAP Festival is a project of the “New Dance Drama” Cultural Association for promoting Contemporary Dance. The Association was created in Sweden in 2000 and legally constituted as an organization in Italy in 2003. Since then, New Dance Drama acts in Italy, Northern Europe, Russia, and the United States researching young talents and expanding on principles of modern and contemporary dance for the creation and development of new dance compositions with a dramatic style. The Association proposes to offer the basics for the education of young artists in a place deeply bound to contemporary visual arts such as sculpture and set design. For this reason, New Dance Drama has had its artistic residence in the City of Pietrasanta since 2008. Since 2009, the Association has participated in numerous international events like for example “The Pietrasanta Festival: Michelangelo and his Heirs” in Montgomery, Alabama, which undertook a journey through the universal themes of existence by connecting the deepest aspects of human nature to our contemporary world.
The program was inspired by Michelangelo’s art, which represents a model to follow according to the highest canons of Aesthetics. All of this is expressed in strongly dramatic terms, communicating ethical, spiritual, and political messages intellectually and collectively. At the same time, dance sculpts the space around it through the sculpture and dynamics of the bodies.
The unveiling power of movement makes dance the art of excellence, able to pass beyond the boundaries of the word and to lead the artist to new creations, founded on the living relationship between space, the body, the scene, and the audience. The moment in which the dance “happens” becomes “DRAMA”, an artistic dream.
