Grazia Capri’s work places dance at the crossroads of art, theater and performance. Since 2010, Grazia has been developing an original body of work focused on movement. Emotions take form in the body and in the space: the poetic expression of a body becomes a screen, and reflects a primordial intimacy.

Grazia Capri: Beyond
An astonishing work that is more performance art than dance
By Rachel Donnelly | Tuesday 14 August 2012 |
“….This fluctuation between the dancer alternately inhabiting her body and then seeming to manipulate it from an external perspective is astonishing, having a sort of voodoo quality to it. More performance art than dance, this is a remarkable work that masterfully manipulates the audience’s perception of the body. “

Beyond (Grazia Capri)
By Lucinda Al-Zoghbi | Published on Friday 31 August 2012
“…Capri challenges preconceptions of comfortable viewing by creating awkward angles in her body and staring out at her audience through the gaps in her hair. She bares all, quite literally, through this poignant piece of performance art.”
