Marco Torrice

Bio

Marco Torrice (Italy) is a performing artist, teacher and choreographer based in Brussels. His work focuses on the facilitation of dance exchange between dancers from different dance styles and cultural backgrounds, and on the redefinition of the concept of ‘contemporary dance’ by opening a dialogue with different dance performance practices then the one usually present in western academic environments.

His fascination for autodidact dance artists and for movement languages which carry different histories and contents than the one of the western dominant culture, such as Voguing, Krump, Hip-Hop Freestyle... led him into an approach to choreography which combines different performance procedures: the frontal contemplation of the dance show with the Cypher, the Happening with the Participatory dance, etc. Often the actual dance forms present in his works rise as a result of an experience of dance sharing where each artist ‘takes’ from the other.
