The GrandPrix Project stems from a reflection on encounter in contemporary dance and its productive processes. Although different generations of artists make up this wide choreographic context, the possibilities for creative exchange are limited. The wider-frame of GrandPrix is to propose itself as both platform and place of encounter between two generations vaunting different study backgrounds and interests, both immersed in the same surroundings and “pool of artists”. The work intends to develop certain aspects particularly dear to the author: the relationship with the viewer’s gaze, quest for a shared sensitive body, the poetics of what happens in the state of reciprocal presence) in the context of public awareness. Inspired by works of Boris Groys in “Going Public”, Giuseppe Penone’s sculptures and their relation with an object’s essence, the body and music of Radigue, Spiegel, and Bach for their repetitive and spatial qualities.
The project has been developed in four different choreographic residences in collaboration with C.L.A.P.Spettacolo dal vivo, CSC – Centro per la Scena Contemporanea di Bassano del Grappa, Teatro Comunale di Teramo/ ACS Abruzzo, Molise Circuito and Lavanderia a Vapore di Collegno/ Fondazione Piemonte dal Vivo.

Maker and performer, now his work sees him engaged in redefining the organization of a body and its generative possibilities in relation to the compositional modalities of dance, visual art, and pop culture.
In 2018 one of his works "Extended symmetry", was selected by the Network Anticorpi XL for the Vetrina della giovane danza d'autore of Ravenna - Ammutinamenti Festival.
In 2019 his new work "FuoriForma", is semifinalist at the Scenario Prize. In the same year, he begins the production of a new choreographic project, "GrandPrix", supported by ResiDance XL-Network XL.
TIR Danza is a production organization operating in the field of contemporary and experimental dance. Its main activity concern the support of choreographers, helping them to spread the value of their identity and of their creations. It is particularly interested in investing on experimental realities that grow up within the most advanced forms of choreographic research. TIR Danza unfolds its creativity through the cooperation of different expertise and professional experiences of the artistic directors Fabio Acca, Massimo Carosi and Pietro Mazzotta.
One of the most remarkable features of TIR Danza is its commitment in developing a curatorial approach that qualifies as constant analysis of the relationship between subjects and artistic languages, audience and production structures. An approach characterised by a cultural research that aims at the consolidation of the “new italian dance system”, with its most dynamic and original artistic expressions.
In 1991 it has been recognised for its dance production activities by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali - Direzione Spettacolo dal Vivo (Italian Ministry of culture and art) and in 1996 for its role in the field of performative arts and cultural promotion by the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Municipality of Modena.
TIR Danza is now supporting Barbara Berti, Riccardo Buscarini, Nicola Galli, Giuseppe Vincent Giampino, Igor and Moreno, Manfredi Perego and Compagnia Factory.
