Cláudia Dias

Cláudia Dias (Lisbon, 1972) is a Portuguese choreographer, performer, and teacher.

Education

Cláudia Dias began her dance training at Academia Almadense and received a scholarship to continue her training with Companhia de Dança de Lisboa. She completed the training program for Contemporary Dance performers at Fórum Dança and the Professional Course in Management of Cultural Organisations and Projects (Cultideias). She holds a Master’s degree in Performing Arts from Universidade Nova de Lisboa.

Performance & Creation Credits

As a performer, Cláudia Dia began her career with Grupo de Dança de Almada. She was part of the artists’ collective Ninho de Víboras, as well as a key performer in João Fiadeiro’s work and in the development, systematisation, and transmission of Real-Time Composition technique. Her works — including One Woman Show, Visita Guiada, Das coisas nascem coisas, Vontade De Ter Vontade, and Nem tudo o que dizemos tem de ser feito nem tudo o que fazemos tem de ser dito — have been presented in festivals and theatres, in Portugal and abroad, over the last 20 years. She is currently at the half-way mark in her Seven Years Seven Pieces cycle, a long-term project that stands in opposition to the idea of a precarious or absent future. In the context of this project, she has premiered Monday: Watch out for the Right with Pablo Fidalgo Lareo (2016), Tuesday: All That Is Solid Melts Into Air with Luca Bellezze (2017), and Wednesday: The Time of The Cherries with Igor Gandra (2018). Thursday, co-created with Basque choreographer Idoia Zabaleta, will premiere in Bilbao in November 2019.

Teaching

Since 2007, Cláudia Dias regularly teaches workshops in Choreographic Composition and Real-time Composition. She has also developed several long-term teaching and training projects, including Nesta Parte Esquinada da Península with Azala, Muelle 3, La Fundición, and Festival BAD, and, more recently, Seven Years Seven Schools, a satellite of the Seven Years Seven Pieces cycle.
