DANCER, CHOREOGRAPHER AND DANCE EDUCATOR
Spanish dancer, choreographer and teacher. She comes from an eclectic dance formation in Spain, Germany and EEUU, built on different techniques such as Ballet, Folklore, Flamenco, Modern Jazz, Modern Dance, Contemporary Dance, releasing techniques, somatic practices and Contact-Improvisation. She obtained her degree in Spanish Dance in 1997 by the Conservatory of Madrid “Mariemma” and her degree in Performance and Choreography of Contemporary Dance in 2012 by the Conservatory of Madrid “María de Ávila”. Her path along the conservatory led her to perform various repertories from Itzik Galili, William Forsythe, Nacho Duato, Jiří Kylián, Wim Vandekeybus, Shlomi Bitton and Angelin Preljocaj. Her Final Study Project was a “theory in practice” based work about Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences and their application in dance educational and artistic contexts. She has recently finished her Master in Contemporary Dance Education, established at Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts. Exploring Butoh for seven years created a shift in her later artistic and choreographic expression.
Her master thesis “Embodying images: Exploring movement and perception in imagery-based dance practice on the example of butoh” deals with the use of images in the current Contemporary Dance stream from the critical and practical perspectives of butoh.
Her dance experience is mainly placed in the Contemporary Dance field, even though it is also meant for other artistic contexts such as opera, film and theater. Her artistic interests meet her current collaborations with Jean-Philippe Dury, Begoña Quiñones & Mar Rodríguez, Muriel Romero & Pablo Palacio, Larumbe Danza and Christoph Marthaler. She further more is involved in Dance Education, working for several BA Dance Programs and Dance Conservatories in Spain, Finland, Germany and Switzerland, focusing mainly in Contemporary Dance Techniques and allied practices, Composition and Improvisation Techniques, while trying to conciliate the actual scene with existing long-life technical frames.
