I grew up in Mexico City.

My continuous evolving search in performance, choreography and academic research spirals around notions of identity, the body as vibrant matter, and the search for my own artistic genealogy. When making work, I believe in the importance of process, research and experimentation. My movement research draws primarily on principles of Feldenkrais method, Limón, release, flying low and contact improvisation.

As a performer, I have worked with Sleepdance (Stephanie Sleeper) in NYC and Wilhelmina Ojanen as part of the Young Associates at Sadler’s Wells. In 2016 I participated in the community project led by Hagit Yakira ‘On Falling and Recovering’.

I hold a First Class BA in contemporary dance from Trinity Laban where I performed works by Zoi Dimitriou, Eleven Farrer House and Yvonne Rainer (transmitted by Sara Wookey). I recently finished an MA at LCDS where I focused on performance and choreography. There I performed work by Theo Clinkard and joined InterArts led by Katye Coe and Frank Bock.

I have published several articles in Mexico City about the work of Yvonne Rainer, Jérôme Bel and La Ribot. I have been writing dance reviews for the last year and interviewed choreographers such as Hofesh Shechter and Gabriela Carrizo & Franck Chartier (Peeping Tom).

My MA dissertation focused on female Latin American performance art.
