Cristina Caprioli

Cristina Caprioli is born and raised in Italy, educated in Sweden and the US, practicing worldwide. In 1998 she founded the independent dance company ccap and in 2004 she founded its sister-organization After more than two decades of continuously innovative work, Caprioli has gained the indisputable position as one of Sweden’s foremost choreographers. Her choreography is marked by clarity, stringency, and precision, but also by its complexity and strong physicality. Her interest lies in structure and disorder. She works with units and operational schemes, tasks and restrictions, logics, counter-logics, and hypothetical strategies in order to resist habit and coerce meaning, construct and question, examine and respond. Cristina’s choreography acts as a critical discourse and therefore demands, but also generates, attention and participation.
