Matteo Carvone is a contemporary dance artist belonging to the new generation of expatriate and international artists who consider Munich as their home and community.
With a serious yet also playful character, Matteo's work ranges from physical-choreographic research to the more scenic, technological, and theatrical, creating works often for non-theatrical spaces. His research intertwines with archetypal figures and inclusive values, seeking complexity and diversity while encouraging convergence between diverse fields, disciplines, and individuals.
Born in Trieste, Italy, in 1985, Matteo Carvone is a dancer and choreographer based in Munich, Germany.
After graduating from his city's art school, he moved to Milan where he completed his training in dance and performing arts at the Dance Haus directed by Susanna Beltrami.
Matteo danced at the Staatstheater am Gärtnrerplatz in Munich under the artistic direction of Karl Alfred Schreiner (with whom he had previously danced in an Ismael Ivo duet at the Venice Biennale in 2007) and in 'La Compagnia' at the Accademia Nazionale Danza in Rome.
In his career he has danced and contributed to the creation for names such as: Alexander Ekman/Orionteatern, Jo Strømgren Kompani, Marco Goeke, Robin Olryn, Michael Keegan-Dolan, Erna Ómarsdóttir, William Forsythe, Emanuel Gat, Benoît Lachambre, Wayne McGregor, Ismael Ivo, Malu Airaudo, Claudia Castellucci, Wubkje Kuindersma, Antony Rizzi, Gabriella Maiorino and many others.
Matteo has also lived and worked in Holland, Sweden, Norway, Austria and studied for fairly long periods in New York, Paris and Montreal, but it is in Munich that Matteo has lived and created most since 2012.
