Argentinean born Gabriela Carrizo (1970, Córdoba) founded the Brussels-based collective Peeping Tom in 2000, together with Franck Chartier. Since then Peeping Tom has grown to a national and international established dance theatre company. Carrizo’s experimental style is a mix between dance and theatre, the ordinary and the mysterious and the normal and abnormal. Carrizo will create new work for the dancers of NDT 1 in Programme I (premiere 6 December).
Carrizo started dancing at a multidisciplinary school at age 10. Until the age of 19 she danced and created her first choreography Suite de las muchachas de las largas piernas with the Ballet de l’Université in Córdoba. She then decided to move to Brussels to work with Caroline Marcadé. In the following years she engaged in different projects between Brussels and Paris.
She created the solo Eet tutto sara d’ombra et di caline (1993), danced with Les Ballets C de la B in La Tristeza Complice (1995) and Iets op Bach (1997) and with Koen Augustijnen in Portrait intérieur (1994). With Needcompany she participated in Images of Affection (2001) and with Einat Tuchman and Elizabeth Estaras she worked on Bartime (2000). With Alain Platel she created the choreography for the opera Wolf (2002). Together with Franck Chartier and several other performers of Les Ballets she created Caravana (1999), a performance in a camper and Une Vie Inutile (2000).
The following years Peeping Tom toured internationally with the trilogy Le Jardin (2002), Le Salon (2005) and Le Sous Sol (2006). In 2009 Carrizo and Chartier created 32, rue Vandenbranden and in 2012 A Louer.
