Presentación

I am a dancer and choreographer although I work from a broad perspective and understanding of both concepts. I graduated in classical dance at the “Institut del Teatre de Barcelona”, I am a ​​Iyengar Yoga teacher and student of the Degree of Anthropology and Human Evolution at the UOC/URV. As a dancer, I have worked with several companies nationally and internationally although currently my main links are with the choreographer Gisele Vienne, the company Cullberg Balletten and the artist, colleague and friend Sonia Gómez. As a choreographer, the last work I have done, Likes, is the result of the intersection between dance, anthropology, yoga. I am currently immersed in continuing to develop the aforementioned axes through new creations, aswell as from “Periferia”, an educational project (with Pau Millas).

Projects in residence at Graner

During my 2 years as an artist associated with the Graner I would like to develop various axes/projects. Right now, I’m busy with my new solo work Spiritual Boyfriends. A piece that explores power relationships and power structures and its based on an iconographic research about the historical construction of yoga poses as well as autobiographical material on affective relationships. I am also preparing a new production that I will make next spring in Germany, with  Unusual Symptoms company, resident at the Theater Bremen. Both pieces are inspired by a way of working which I already started with my solo work Likes, in relation with the Internet as a medium for cultural confluence, hybridization of practices, different ways of social relationships and construction of identity.

Residencie 2019

A brief description  about the project in residencie – 2019: 

This is a stage project that investigates the iconographic research of physical practices that have shaped modern postural yoga from a hybrid standpoint since its origins to the present day. In the visual and anthropological research, personal / autobiographical imagery are infiltrated and amalgamated, creating a choreographic scenario where documentary and personal data come together to enable us to explore issues related to reality, fiction, image, power, gender, sexuality, spirituality, identity, digitization, etc.
