To introduce my relation with dance first introducing my statment as an artist:
BODIES MATTER LIFE MATTER ALLLIFEMATTER
Body is a mural of human representation. It’s also the vessel that carry our feelings and sensations. It’s memory and personification. Feelings of belonging and or rejection image x projection.
To move bodies is necessary to shape bridges and to erase bprders.
With my body as a peformance artist mover political singularity.
Triving for emancipation, autonomy, perhaps, fascination, disgust and comotion.
My role as an artist is not to feed the art world is to bring awareness into the space.
Currently my research is body as it’s , poltical, manifesto, and a bridge between the art world and the restless of society. Also the body is a tool of healing and a facilitation towards overcome social and personal issues.
The themes are various , among other, democracy at risk, gender issues, empathy and the relevance of body as a medium of art, and the life as a matter of preservation and respect, anti colonial, environment aware.
I’ve developed solo pieces, and worked with many professionals of dance making and choreographers.
I’ve worked myself as a choreographer and along with different ensembles of musicians, dancers, performers and visual artists.
Solo was a site specific research with many editions, shaped by time and under circumstances - adapting and changing the places which it has occupied
