Dance - Theatre - Installation
I am looking for an Art form in which those three elements emerges equally
For Matteo Carvone the importance of the architectural space, in which the piece takes place is fundamental.
The space in fact is never intended and designed as a decorative element, but rather as the main subject of the work, the set is the basic element with which Carvone begins to build his pieces. The space becomes the habitat and it is a fundamental limit in the creation.
Carvone also working with Video and Video installations, and he is collaborating with the Light Designer Jakob Bogensperger and the Sound Designer Josy Friebel.
