Giuseppe Lotito Bio
Dancer, writer, choreographer,
he initially trained with two italian classical dance masters Luciana Novaro (teatro La Scala di Milano) and Virgilio Pitzalis (New York). At the same time he studied music theory and guitar, with Gigi Cifarelli, and violoncello with maestro Simone Groppo.
Suddenly he turned to practising martial arts like Tai Chi Chuan and Shaolin Mon, meanwhile gaining a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and creates a center for the study of this Olympic sport calling it "Olympic Dojang" and teaching in Italy and Switzerland. Last but not least, is his study of the Japanese sword, which becomes the result of all his study of the martial arts.
After an interval of 7 years during which he studied the Gurdjieff "Sacred Dances" and studied with the Whirling Dervishes from Cyprus directed by a religious eminence known as Maulana Nazim Sheyk, he stopped his activities to release the publication of his first novel.
In 1999 Giuseppe accidentally discovers the Argentine Tango and falls in love with it, seeing in it movements and codes that have similarities and syncretism with the arts that he had studied so far. He studied extensively with leading teachers directly in Buenos Aires, staying in the South American cities for long periods over a number of visits.
After all this experimental roaming, he could not help but come up with a fantastic idea: to devise a combat martial dance full of codes, tango and contemporary dance but also with an Eastern sacredness that has always fascinated him.
He calls it Taitango and starts a daily study interrelated with a period of research lasting ten years.
He now offers this discipline in various schools both in Italy and abroad (from Israel to Europe until Morocco) with the aim of educating the soul, mind and body with the purpose of dancing both alone or in pairs in the most magical of sensory experiences.
He has participated in many international festivals such as Berlin, Budapest, Vienna, Verona, Milan and has also taught all over the world from Kyrgyzstan in the east to Buenos Aires in the west.
