Since 2005, the CIA MOVEO produces and tours on international stages productions that explore the narrative strength of the body and the expressive richness of the movement.
Far from illustrating through gestures, far from an abstract plasticity of the body separated from theatricality, Cia Moveo researches and works the development of a physical language that constantly seeks the connection between different disciplines.
Based in Barcelona, the company is formed by Spanish and international artists, and was co-founded by Stéphane Levy, Sophie Kasser and Olivier Decriaud.
Since its creation, the company has been awarded several prizes, the most recent being the Best Performance Award (dance category) of the International Theater and Dance Fair of Huesca’15 (Spain), the Best Company Award of the Imaginarius’16 Festival in Portugal, and the Moritz Fira Tàrrega’17 Award for Best Street Arts Premiere. Cia Moveo was also nominated for the 2018 Critic’s Award and for the Dansacat Award 2020.
The company receives the support of the Region of Catalonia, the Barcelona City Council and the Institut Ramon Llull and is working together with the manager Fani Benages.
