In modern society, we often find ourselves having to choose between who we really are and who we choose to show to the world. Our nature is stifled, causing an existential vertigo, in which we are enveloped by a sense of emptiness. The work is a poetic journey in search of the self.
Grazia Capri has worked with many contemporary choreographers in Italy and France. She obtained a Master Degree in Arts Performance at University of Bologna and a postgraduate degree in Benesh Movement Notation at CNSDMP. Since 2010, Grazia is working as a choreographer and won artistic residencies in Paris, London and Berlin. Her work was performed at festivals, theaters and galleries in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Ravenna, Rio de Janeiro. Grazia has been developing an original body of work focused on movement. In her work one's inner world emerges, giving life to surreal and essential landscapes.
