Contemporary Dance, Aereal Dance ( principlally on silk)
About Anita Brandolini:
Choreographer, dancer and aerial dancer Anita started her artistic career as a young figure skater. Coming from studies of classical ballet, she developed early on a strong interest for the study of movement and focused her formation on different methods of contemporary dance. Anita participated in different courses with renown dancers like Virgilio Sieni, Alain Platel, and Emio Greco. She studied with two of Tanztheater Pina Bausch Company’s most important contemporary dancers, Cristiana Moranti and Kenji Takagi, both of whom she has continued working with ever since.
Since January 2010 Anita actively takes part in an innovative exploratory study promoted by EFESTOTEATRO ( www.efestoteatro.blogspot.com). The group is engaged in a long-term project about movements, departing from three main disciplines: physical theater, organic movement/corporal expression, and aerial dance.
Anita earned her Bachelor’s degree in History of Theater and Dance from the Liberal Art College of Florence and dedicates herself professionally to aerial dance on silk since 2008. She mainly works in collaboration with other aerial artists like Elena Manni, Caterina Fort and Nicole Kehrberger. Besides, Anita holds courses and workshops both in Italy (Milan, Varese, Canazei, Florence, Empoli, Parma, amongst other) and Spain ( Pt.o de Santa Maria, Cadiz, and Seville).
The course of research of the young dancer springs from her perceiving aerial dance as an effective tool of language and expressive movement beyond her living it as an athletic virtuosity.
