About the author
Independent choreographer, sound artist, dancer and teacher, born in 1990. Researches the art of the performance living through the tension existing between presentation and sensation and between the heard and seen. Creating extreme physical-vocal practices, in which she examines how esthetics and art has to offer the humiliated body, the human contour that changes between pleasure and suffering, coercion of independence, the singular and tribe. Composing with chorographical-musical vision, through plastic, visual and sonar means, the tension in the performer’s body, as matter, mass and sound.
