ABOUT

MATTEO CARVONE

“I am in search of a type of theatre in which dance, words and installation have equal footing, a ‘theatre of images’ where the logic of dramaturgy illuminates the process of creation. I have no story in my theatre, what I have is a material desire to create archetypal characters that exist within the time and space of a performance. I believe in a non-elitist type of art, in an artist who knows how to connect the mind and the gut through the heart. I believe in the craftsmanship of work and I firmly believe in the sacredness of the language of the body”.

Matteo Carvone

CREATIONS

Dance - Theatre - Installation

I am looking for an Art form in which those three elements emerges equally 

 

For Matteo the importance of the architectural space, in which the piece takes place is fundamental.

The space in fact is never intended and designed as a decorative element, but rather as the main subject of the work, the set is the basic element with which Carvone begins to build his pieces. The space becomes the habitat and it is a fundamental limit in the creation.

Carvone also working with Video and Video installations, and he is collaborating with the Light Designer Jakob Bogensperger and the Sound Designer Josy Friebel.
