Matteo Marfoglia is currently still in the process of becoming a Gaga teacher at the Gaga teacher training program. 

Matteo is a choreographer and dance artist based in Cardiff. Matteo started to choreograph in 2010 for the first time thanks to the platform Dansers Maken run by Introdans (NL). In 2013 Matteo returned to making his own work via Alternative Routes, National Dance Company Wales’ annual choreographic platform, where he continued to develop his approaches to choreography, playing with different techniques and involving other art forms.                                       

Since then his work has toured in the UK as well as internationally, selected by festivals or organisations such as Valletta 2018 ECOC, Altofest, Interplay/18 and Anticorpi XL among others. In 2017/2018 Matteo received a Creative Wales Award from the ACW towards his research on how to bring contemporary dance out of theatre space and into more unconventional venues by exploring how movement can be generated through a process of responding to communities, histories and the inhabitants of particular places.

Matteo is an Associate Artist at National Dance Company Wales.
