Born and raised in Puerto Rico based between Brussels and Marseille. I have worked as a dancer, choreographer, and performer in NYC, Montréal, Paris, Puerto Rico and Brussels.
My main form of expression is movement. My work is transposed into onstage performances, video and installations. In my work the body turns into a vessel where forms, concepts and movement coexist. My research is based on exploring human relations and philosophical concepts through a sensible approach. I proposes aesthetic experiences where I open up space for collective thought.
I hold an MFA in Art and Choreography from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels, section ISAC (Institut Supérieur des Arts et Chorégraphies). Graduated with a BA in Performing Arts and Foreign Languages, specialized in French from the University of Puerto Rico.
I have worked and trained with international artists like Yvonne Rainer, Yuyachkani, Ariane Mnouchkine’s Théâtre du Soleil, Malayerba, Shuman’s Bread and Puppet Theater, Preljocaj, with collaborating artists from Última Vez and Rosas, Charlotte Vanden Eyden, Hayo David, Ex Nihilo, amongst others.
I have worked as a teacher offering movement training and contemporary dance workshops in Puerto Rico and Brussels. I weave improvisation, release technique, and movement flow in my teachings. I am currently a part of En Archipel asbl, a multidisciplinary artist collective.
I continue to develop my work as well as offering movement training and workshops locally and abroad.
