Caprioli, Cristina

Information

Born and raised in Italy, educated in Sweden ad the US, after a dance carrier in Swiss and German theaters, moved to NY to focus on contemporary dance studies and work with choreographer Douglas Dunn. Back in Europe in the early 80’s she taught extensively in Germany, Austria and Stockholm, Sweden where she ‘83 settled and has been resident ever since. Cristina began to choreograph in the mid 90’s and ´98 founded the independent dance company ccap for which she has produced over 30 works. Her ccap work tours nationally on a regular basis and has been internationally acclaimed in New York, Helsinki, Oslo, Paris, Warsaw, Vilnius, Riga, Vienna, Munich, and other cities in Russia, Italy, England, and the US. After more then two decades of continuously innovative work, Cristina has gained the indisputable position as one of Sweden’s foremost choreographers. Her choreography is marked by clarity, stringency, and precision, but also by its complexity and strong physicality. Cristina’s interest lies in structure and disorder. She works with units and links, task and restrictions, rules, games, logic, counter-logics, and hypothetical strategies: to resist habit and unfold potentiality, to induce form and unleash other meaning, to construct and question, examine and respond. Cristina’s choreography acts as critical discourse and therefore demands, but also generates attention, and participation. (Quelle: www.ccap.se) / jst
