Alito Alessi @ ImPulsTanz 2012, Vienna
Conversation with Alitto Alessi about the DanceAbility approach to differently able performers. This conversation took place within the frame of the DanceAbility Teacher Certification 2012 during ImPulsTanz festival in Vienna.

Alito Alessi is the artistic director and founder of the Joint Forces Dance Company and teaches and performs DanceAbility and Contact Improvisation internationally for more than 20 years. Both Joint Forces as well as DanceAbility are considered to be the most important pioneer-projects in the field of "mixed-abilities dance". This project for performers and teachers with and without disabilities achieved international appreciation for its artistic vision and the unique method in widening variety in dance.
Over several years Alito Alessi received scholarships for his choreographic works from American National Endowment of the Arts. As one of the pioneers of integrating Contact Improvisation into choreographic work, collaborations with artists include Steve Paxton, Nancy Stark Smith, Andrew Harwood, Karen Nelson amongst others.
