Michele Di Stefano Silver Lion for Dance

The Silver Lion for Dance has been awarded to Michele Di Stefano for introducing, in choreography, a vibrating musical body that corresponds to the image of man and his ceaseless observation of geography and the landscape.
For having chosen the language of dance as a means to generate anthropological journeys that lead us to discern within each of us the presence of tribes organized in terms of posture, irregular dynamics and the deconstruction of spatial perimeters.

Michele Di Stefano uses his body to illustrate the fauna and the flora that together feed man’s capacity for transfiguration, and salvation, through the gesture of dance.
