Venue: Graner, Centre de creació del cos i el moviment
Jane Adams, 14-15

For professional dancers and advanced dance students

The Portuguese dancer and choreographer Tânia Carvalho will lead a workshop focused on her repertoire along with an explanation of why and how she came to choose these specific movements. Carvalho will base this work on Síncopa in particular, the solo she will present at Sâlmon, though she will also use movements from other pieces.

The renowned choreographer will teach some of the movements from her choreographies and will guide the dancers by explaining their origin and the idea she had in mind at the time of their creation.

Trained in classical and contemporary dance, the Portuguese artist Tânia Carvalho moved to Lisbon in 1995. In 1997 she began her career as a choreographer and in the same year launched a biennial training programme in contemporary dance for performers at the Forum Dança (Lisbon). There she met Filipe Viegas and Clara Sena, who invited her to join a newly created group called Bomba Suicida. Tânia Carvalho is co-founder of this group, with whom she continues to develop her work. In 2005 she attended the choreography course on the artistic and creative programme funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon). Tânia Carvalho also explores the realms of music, which has resulted in projects such as Ideolecto (2013), Moliquentos (2011), Trash Nymph (2008) and Madmud (2007). She has studied piano and music theory with João Aleixo, Diogo Alvim and Yuri Popov. She also maintains some contact with the plastic arts and sporadically devotes her time to drawing.
