Cristina Caprioli was raised in Italy, educated in Sweden and the United States, and currently resides in Stockholm, Sweden. After more than two decades of continuous innovative work, she has gained the indisputable position as one of Sweden's foremost choreographers. Her work is marked by its clarity, stringency, and precision, but also by its complexity of thought and cerebral physicality. Over the years she has produced over 30 works, several films and installations, two conferences/festivals, one symposium, an exhibition, published an Anthology, run several research projects, toured nationally and internationally, choreographed for several institutions and extensively taught.
This German premiere is about gestures that belong to no one. A speedy piece that blurs a hyper-clear thought, att att is performed by five dancers devoted to absolute accuracy of replication, which turns them into a ‘pack of spineless anthropomorphic speech-machines’. The piece is the outcome of a process of re-describing a series of set movement sequences informed by a poetic essay. The performers resist appropriative interpretation, and disembody themselves and everything in between through unconditional loyalty to the given.
A production with the support of The Swedish Arts Council, The Swedish Arts Grants Committee and The Swedish Research Council.
