Socially engaged in the diffusion of contemporary dance, the two choreographers love dealing with the unspeakable evocative power of the body language. This is the reason why their work is accurate, demanding, but also passionate; the body is manipulated, thrown on the floor, caressed, lived in every detail, never distant from a scenographic context of evocative importance and emotional impact. At the moment Salvatore Romania is the art director of a cultural centre devoted to the divulgation of contemporary dance. The centre is at “Auditorium Leonardo”, in Carlentini, where various art shows and events take place. He is now working at Compagnia Petranuradanza’s 2016 new creations.
