Claudia Triozzi began studying classical and contemporary dance in Italy and moved to Paris in 1985.
In parallel to working as a performer/interpreter (with Odile Duboc, Georges Appaix, François Ferret, Alain Buffard, Xavier Leroy and Xavier Boussiron), she created her own pieces in which she was involved in both stage directing and performance. Her research and reflection is grounded in a transmission in which the experience of doing, sharing and engagement and commitment to others reveals a reflection that opens up spaces of subjectivity and of temporal re-activation.
She creates iconoclastic shows, tableaux vivants, in which dance never comes out unscathed because for Claudia Triozzi the point is always to test presuppositions about the choreographic show. The performance space, the modes of interpretation/performance specific to dancers, and the very notions of the show are constantly interrogated. From one piece to another, from exhibition spaces to theatre stages, Claudia Triozzi pushes back the limits of the body and the spaces of visibility of the dancer.
Since the piece The Family Tree (2002), Claudia Triozzi, accompanied on stage by Xavier Boussiron, has been exploring voice work through experimentations that have led her to write texts and songs. She experiments with sounds marked by a Brutalist or lyrical vocabulary in which the voice is expressed through paragraphs of time drawn from cinema, theatre and radio.
In March 2011, on an invitation by the Musée de la Danse (/Dancing Museum) in Rennes, she began a new project titled Pour une these vivante in which she explores artists’ writing.
Her project has developed at once on stage and through video and installations, shown in museums and galleries. Her shows have been staged in Europe, the United States, Korea, and Japan where she was awarded the 2004 AFAA, Villa Kujoyama off-site projects grant. She develops her teaching in connection to her own work, working in different art schools in France and overseas. In 2011, she was awarded the Centre Nationale de Danse (Pantin) “Aide à la recherche et au patrimoine en danse” grant and a research grant from the Akademie Solitide in Stuttgart.
