Moveo is a training centre specialised in physical theatre, and a professional performing arts company. It is also a centre supporting devised performance. In that sense, we offer the resources we have in our space to creators who have a professional project of physical theatre or interdisciplinary.
We do this through our Moveo residency program, with the following aims:
• to promote young, contemporary and quality devised theatre.
• to provide the opportunity for artists to be not only performers, but also creators and producers of their own projects.
• to strengthen the autonomy of artists who have recently completed their specialised training.
• to drive a unique space in Barcelona specialised in the development and experimentation of physical theatre.
• to support physical theatre and make it grow in order to enhance its identity as a genre.
• to promote the optimization of resources in devised performance: poverty of means equals wealth of imagination.
• to bring dialogue and exchange between artists and creative professionals from around the world.

In this context, the show Desveladas was created with Angela Zamorano, Eva Pallikari, Evi Charalampidou, Rebecca Ryan and Maria Södermark.
