ATLAS map of moves – DPDT

“I knew that in an infinite time all things happen to every man.”
(The Aleph / The immortal – Borges)

In ATLAS (Map of moves) Dani Pannullo is nourished by the imaginary of photographer José Ortiz Echagüe (1886-1980) to continue delving into the search for his personal choreographic language. The mutual interest of the photographer and the choreographer for orientalism is reflected in a show where the barriers between the different artistic expressions disappear to create their own language and aesthetics.

ATLAS is a game of contrasts between the energy emitted by a body of dance formed by athletes / dancers, fully masculine, and the evocative beauty of Ortiz-Echagüe’s images. Dani Pannullo creates a choreography surprisingly close to acrobatics that combines elements of work-out free-style with parkour technique, b-boying and even elements of the Greco-Roman struggle.

In the words of Dani himself, “ATLAS is a free-thinking show that uses dance to talk about such transcendental topics as childhood, courage or rivalry; reflects on the symbols and the strength of religions. “
