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.
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.
