Felicitaciones / Congratulations

Co-presented with L’Écart
My research focuses on the relationship between the city and the body, understanding the city as a dynamic and changing environment where we co-exist and produce different corporealities. I work with improvisation and interdisciplinary practices. Improvisation as a technique trains us to be attentive and open to the present. I understand interdisciplinary practice as a place of new experiences and blurred boundaries, where collective experimentation capitalizes on the diversity of knowledge and experience in order to expand creative possibilities and go beyond the known patterns.
