LUCA VEGGETTI - Born in Bologna, Italy, Veggetti trained under I. Glowacka and G. Popescu at La Scala in Milan. He began his career as a dancer performing with companies such as, London Festival Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, and Ballet Chicago. Shifting his focus in 1990, he began to explore choreography and directing through an on-going collaboration with director and designer Pier Luigi Pizzi.

Veggetti has had a notable international career: he was the first Italian choreographer to be invited to work with the Kirov Ballet at the Marinsky in St. Petersburg and has been invited multiple times to create work for New York City Ballet's Choreographic institute, Works & Process at the Guggenheim and The Miller Theatre at Columbia University. He has created new works for the Ballet of the Rome Opera, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet in New York City, the Spoleto Festival in Italy, Perm Ballet in Russia, and the Milanoltre Festival. Veggetti has been an artist in residence at Purchase College and The Juilliard School.

He has directed, designed and choreographed the world premiere of Iannis Xenakis' Oresteia (September 2008) and the US premiere of Kaija Saariaho's full-length piece Maa (September 2010) as well as the Japanese premiere of Toshio Hosokawa's opera Hanjo in Tokyo. In 2010, as part of the Xenakis Festival, Veggetti created a puppet version of Xenakis' Oresteia for the Make Music New York Festival that takes place annually in Central Park.

In addition to the evening-length production Bacchae, created for Morphoses' 2011 season, Veggetti is collaborating with multi-media artist, Susan Hefuna, on a new work, point-move-line, in honor of the opening of The Drawing Center's newly designed exhibition space. He also continues to pursue collaborations with contemporary music ensembles such as FontanaMix in Italy, MusikFabrik in Koeln, ICE ensemble in New York, as well as with composers Paolo Aralla, Toshio Hosokawa, Sylvano Bussotti and Matthias Pintscher.
