Father and son D’Anna explore their relation on stage: a collection of personal events, shared through the lines of the skin and the shapes of two bodies tied by blood.
The interpreters' Curriculum Vitae entwines with the motion, creating a score that flows between theatre and abstract where the disease defines limits to cross. The project comes from the desire to tell a story using "the limit" as an opportunity, highlighting moments and facts that, from a stranger's point of view, could seem not important; but those are the events that make existence memorable.

Giulio D’Anna is based in Amsterdam. He has graduated in Choreography in 2009 at SNDO (School for New Dance Development). He has trained as Ballet dancer with the Royal Academy of Dancing for 12 years. Beside dance studies Giulio is graduated as alternative medicine therapist and Theta healer. As choreographer he is interested in the fusion of different theatre languages with “dramatic bodies”. In his works he seeks for translation of drama as genre into a contemporary theatre language. Drama, desire and humour are key words for his productions. He works as independent maker in between The Netherlands and Italy and, as performer, he works regularly with NB/projects (Amsterdam). In the last years his dance productions have been shown in The Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Germany. In 2011 Giulio won the Equilibrio dance festival; the production prize supported the creation of Parkin’son. At the moment Giulio is produced by Dansateliers in Rotterdam.
