CHOREO-DRIFT is a conference performed by a series of choreographic events – travelling across the globe, travelling adrift, as to challenge and be challenged by the encounter with different locations and circumstances.
CHOREO-DRIFT addresses choreography as politics, and departs from the body of work exposed and produced by the WEAVING POLITICS www.weavingpolitics.se symposium, to be further articulated and disseminated.

Cristina Caprioli: Internationally acclaimed artist and choreographer Cristina Caprioli was raised in Italy, educated in both Sweden and the United States, and is currently based out of Stockholm, Sweden. She has been choreographing since the mid 1990s and in 1998 founded the independent dance company ccap. Within ccap, Caprioli has produced over 30 works and tours regularly both nationally and internationally.
After more than two decades of continuous innovative work, Caprioli has gained the indisputable position as one of Sweden's foremost choreographers. Her choreography is marked not only by its clarity, stringency, and precision, but also its complexity and strong physicality. Her interest lies in both structure and disorder. She works with units and operational schemes, tasks and restrictions, logic, counter-logics, and hypothetical strategies to resist habit and coerce meaning, construct and question, and examine and respond. Caprioli's choreography acts as critical discourse and therefore demands, but also generates attention and participation.
