The jury is very much impressed with the way D'Anna expresses a very rich, but also complex theme in a very pure, powerful and clear form.
Giulio D’Anna presents a very personal theme in a universal way. Therefore he is able to communicate and inspire many different people.
His work underlines the importance of art in society and stresses the value of dance as an essential part of human nature and existence.
Dioraphte Dance Prize 2012
D’Anna universalizes a space where the body reveals its fragility and questions the potential of art as element of redemption, of transformation and identification. A place where the limits can be transformed into vital energy. A lyric act of comprehension of personal and universal
Elisabetta Ceron - Il Messaggero Veneto
Parkin’Son revelas inedited compositional skills on the young author, Giulio D’’Anna that believes in art as instrument that helps us to find ourselves, to loose ourselves, to to listen, to comprehend, to be fully human.
Giuseppe di Stefano - Il Sole 24 Ore
In the field of Italian, and international, choreography with its fresh and withered flowers, a sprout of talent has appeared. In the style of D’Anna, wisely built in time and space, prevails a special lightness that caresses like a glove our emotions and burst into punches that hurt.
