With Tânia Carvalho movement explores different roads
Several theatres in Lisbon decided to present a joint path to explore Tânia Carvalho’s work, leading figure of Bomba Suicida between 1997 and 2014. Mainly Choreographer, she’s also passionate about drawing and musical composition. With A Bag and a Stone, she faces a new challenge: she imagines a choreography that would live its own life and would find a projection screen better than a stage to develop itself. On an original Diogo Alvin’s score, according to gorgeous black and white twilight images, movement explores different roads.
Born in Portugal in 1976, Tânia Carvalho starts studying ballet at the age of five. At 14, she swaps to contemporary dance. Together with other artists she founds Bomba Suicida (1997-2014). Her performances- a repertory of nearly 20 pieces - share a common concern about lines, structure and space.
