The CIA MOVEO is creating very physical shows where movement, text and music come together. For this fusion of languages, and specifically for the show Requiem, the company received in 2007 the Jury’s Special Prize of the Mostra de Teatre de Barcelona.
In 2011, our show ARA! was awarded the e-MIX Quality Label, an internationally recognized quality seal for physical and visual theatre.
In 2015, Tu vas tomber! received the Best Show Award (dance category) from the Huesca International Theater and Dance Fair and the Best Company Award from the portuguese festival Mais Imaginarius. In 2017 the CIA was awarded for Conseqüències the FiraTàrrega Moritz Prize and nominated for the Catalan Critics’ Awards.
Since its creation, the CIA MOVEO has brought creative work to international stages that explores the narrative possibilities of the body and the expressive richness of the movement. Always offering a trip to the human condition through the “out of the ordinary” with which we can play, the CIA MOVEO creates shows that bring the public closer to the communicative capacity of physical theatre.
The company was created in 2005 by Sophie Kasser, Stéphane Lévy and Olivier Décriaud. All three were trained in London with the Co. Théâtre de l’Ange Fou and have worked together since then, creating various shows and touring England, Belgium, Korea, Croatia, Scotland, Spain, France, Holland, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania and Switzerland.
Since 2015, the company has received the support of the Barcelona distributor Fani Benages, the Region of Catalonia, the Barcelona City Council and the Institut Ramon Llull.
