Darío Barreto Damas (Bardam) (SP) is an artist working within the field of dance and choreography. His work and initiations are focused on functional systems of reciprocal and collective working, (both when solo or co-authorship works).
His education takes place at Teatro Victoria, Tenerife; Institut del Teatre, Barcelona and DOCH, Stockholm. In the summer 2017, Darío has been granted with the DanceWEB scholarship.
Darío has worked with Cullberg Baletten as a guest dancer, collaborating along Deborah Hay and Jefta Van Dinther. Currently he is collaborating and working at CCAP, hand by hand with Cristina Caprioli and her crew.
As performer and dancer, Darío is interested in agency, adaptability, attention, work ecologies and politics of inclusion. Choreographically his focus sinks into fiction and fantasy, utopian-dreamy spaces, decontextualizations and sensualities.
He stands for research structures as a working sphere that could provide survival strategies to his own work, (to not encapsulate it in a singular product frame).
Darío is member and co-initiator, with Aleksandar Georgiev and Zhana Pencheva of STEAM ROOM.
