Marco Augusto Chenevier works and lives between France and Italy.
Choreographer, dancer, director and actor, he develops, as an author, a research that crosses linguistic codes, explores the limits and questions form and structure, creating original hybrids born from the fusion of dance, theater, circus, cabaret, board games and technology.
His work wants to move and stimulate thought, surprise and pleasure at the same time, avoiding cultural elitism as much as entertainment, spectacle and consumerism.
Aesthetic research and political reflection are closely linked, in a merciless analysis of power relations.
The research and creation processes, the result of rigorous practices, have constituted a path characterized by the recovery of archetypes and their desecration in the contemporary world, and led over the years to heterogeneous aesthetic results, alternating humour, lyricism, poetry and iconoclasm.
Graduated at International Academy of Theater in Rome, he studied at Filomarino contemporary dance school and with Annapaola Bacalov in Rome.
For seven years was student and than assistant to Isaac Alvarez (first J. Lecoq assistant)in France.
