MATTEO CARVONE

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 also 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.

BIO

 

Dancer and choreographer Matteo Carvone was born in Trieste, Italy in 1985.

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 in 'La Compagnia' at the Accademia Nazionale Danza in Rome, to then join the ballet company of 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), Jo Strømgren Kompani in Oslo and Alexander Ekman / Orionteatern, is Sweden.

In his career he has danced and contributed to the creation for names such as: Alexander Ekman, Jo Strømgren, Marco Goeke, Robin Olryn, Michael Keegan-Dolan, Erna Ómarsdóttir, William Forsythe, Karl Alfred Schreiner, Benoît Lachambre, Wayne McGregor, Ismael Ivo, Malu Airaudo, Claudia Castellucci, Wubkje Kuindersma, Antony Rizzi, Gabriella Maiorino, Emanuel Gat, and many others.

Matteo has lived and worked in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, and Austria. He also studied for fairly long periods in New York and Paris, and his personal curiosity led him to discover many other countries in the world, forming a profound foundation for his personal artistic voice.

However, since 2012, it is in the city of Munich that Matteo has predominantly found his home and artistic base.
