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, Contact-Improvisation and butoh. 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 performing contexts. She has recently finished her Master in Contemporary Dance Education, established at Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
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 as a performer meet her current collaborations with Jean-Philippe Dury (EBB Dance Company), Muriel Romero & Pablo Palacio (Dance & Media), Larumbe Danza (Young audiences) and Christoph Marthaler (Theater). As a choreographer, she closely collaborates with Begoña Quiñones, and Mar Rodríguez, creating pieces which has toured nationally and internationally. 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, Composition and Improvisation Techniques, and allied practices, trying to conciliate the current performance practices through a contemporary approach to historical technical frames.
