ARTISTIC STATEMENT
THE IMMEDIATE BODY

The body as a laboratory / as a battle ground: is through the knowing of one's own body that one can rethink and reorganise the inherited configurations of perception and transform the different realities. Acknowledging the body and mind hierarchies one can navigate through different paradigms of perception and open new doors of existing and interacting in the environment. 

I use these elements as tools that I apply to deal with inner and external sensitive experiences, as a way to develop a body and mind awareness about the structures that shape behavior, and perception. Testing the limits of the anatomy, and imagination not only in a self-analyze but also regarding the community, social and nature environment in order to challenge their resilience and transformative capacity.

Between the years 2014 and 2018, she tours in Spain and Portugal working with different choreographers. With the desire of understanding the body and the human being deeply, she studies Anthropology and Pilates on the side, specifically Fascial Pilates, an aspect of Pilates adapted to contemporary discoveries in human anatomy.

The immersion in these fields gives her an eclectic and profound knowledge of the human being and its body, as a social, spiritual and historical being. In 2018, she moves to Berlin, where she starts developing her choreographic work, collaborating and performing with different artists in the Czech Republic, Germany or Spain so far.
