Daniele Albanese is a choreographer, dancer and performer based between Italy and Berlin. After having trained as a gymnast and ballet dancer, he obtained a BA at EDDC (now ArtEZ) in Arnhem – The Netherlands where he studied with several leading figures linked to American Post-modernism.
Since 1995, while developing his work as an independent author, he has been collaborating with many renowned artists such as Benoit Lachambre, Virgilio Sieni, Nigel Charnock, Jennifer Lacey, Enzo Cosimi, Eva Karczag.
In 2002 he established his own company Compagnia STALKER_Daniele Albanese in order to investigate dance as a language in terms of relationship between closed and open structures, in search of a choreographic sign which would be precise and mutable at the same time.
His research inhabits the constant flow that goes from the body as an object to the body as a subject through a flux of transformations in which gestures become abstractions and viceversa.
His works explore the hybrid forms that arise in the transition from a place to another, from a movement to another, in which boundaries are not seen as obstacles but rather as a point of turmoil that generates new ways of encountering the audience, thus leading it to unusual dimensions of perception.
His shows have been presented in several international theatres and festivals.
Since 2017 he is an associate artist with Nanou Associazione Culturale.
He is currently attending the second year of a three-year training course at Schule für Alexander Technik directed by Dan Armon in Berlin, while working on a new choreographic/performative project titled HOME.
