Addaura, is an Italian word which lends its name to palaeolithic grottoes found on Mount Pellegrino in Palermo. Human figures are drawn on the stone in one of the caves. They form a circle, as if they are dancing. I discovered them by accident, and I think they were secretly waiting for us to gift us with the name of the company. Life’s unending wonders…
We’ve done it
Many years ago, my daughter, a dancer, Cristina Bertran, suggested that I create a dance show with classmates from her graduating class. After pondering the possibility, I decided to create a theatre group whose work was grounded upon the desire to explore and experiment by merging the different disciplines in the performing arts.
In this creative project called Addaura Teatre Visual, I allow my entire imagination and the theatre techniques which I have been working with off and on during the 40 years of my career as an artist to run wild with enthusiasm.
