Grazia Capri


Choreographer / Performer

Independent author, choreographer, and performer, I am of Italian origins. Since 2010 I  have been working on original movement-based bodywork, contaminating different languages, aesthetics, and formats.


Poet of bodies, I create portraits of solitudes; I bring poetic and intimate to a hybrid form of performing art while helping the audience enjoy and investigate body and movement in contemporary art. 


Throughout all these years of practice and movement research, the body has been my refuge.

In my art, the body is the protagonist of a path of deep self-knowledge and purifying healing. 


With an essential gesture, and a naked aesthetic, I explore loneliness in different social contests as the fil rouge of the modern condition; while talking about a few social issues, I focus my attention on the intimate experience of the individual. I investigate the emotions, fears, and movements of the soul, translating them through the body to return and then universalizing the story with non-narrative language. 



I trained in Ballet, Modern dance, and Contemporary dance. I achieved a bachelor's and Master's degree in Theater and Dance History at the University of Bologna (Italy), and an advanced training diploma and a specialized diploma in Benesh Movement Notation at the Conservatoire Supérieur National de Musique et de Danse in Paris (CNSDMP).


 In Paris, I started an independent path of choreographic experimentation to generate my writing. Since 2008 I got artistic residencies in Paris, London, and Berlin, and I created choreographic projects halfway between dance, theater, and visual arts, performing in Galleries and Festivals around Europe; to this period belong: ON BEING AN ANGEL, two years of residency at Mains d'Oeuvre in Paris; PER VOCE SOLA, residency at Space @Clarence Studio in London; ISLANDS; ANGELINE, residency at Corpo6 Gallery in Berlin; ANATOMIE D'UN ANGE.


In 2015 I moved to New York, where I continued to work on the format's contamination, opening a deeper reflection on memories and the resulting body images.

 I began an artistic collaboration with the composer Stefano Cavazzini, with whom I created a series of works like CORPI IN VERTIGINE, in partnership with the Department of Italian Literature and The Department of Visual Arts at Fordham University in New York); SILENT BREAT, BREATHING UNDERWATER, TERRA FIRMA, and AGATA, in partnership with the Museo B.Romano of Termini Imerese/Palerme and the patronage of ICOM.


 Recently I produced TRACES OF ME, FROZEN SKY, and BACK to BACH in collaboration with Creative Performance Network and Dixon Place Theater in New York.
