As a migrant, my work has been informed by my personal experiences as a body in exile, transforming singular experiences into universal ones. Incorporating these notions in my dance practice, I have been exploring the ways in which I could translate them into movement. Through a choreography and performance pieces, I seek to create dialogue in which my personal experience informs a universally relevant social and political issue.
I believe in co-imagination, togetherness and intimacy as an interdisciplinary way of creation and resistance, against contemporary practices related to precarity in dance and production in late capitalism. I reflect on co-imagination and collaborative practices (from everyday life to dance practices), horizontality as a significant tool to overcome exile, separation and to explore diaspora.
I consider the condition of non-migrants as susceptible subjects of exile from different perspectives. However, I do not want my artistic practice to be exclusively viewed through my context as an immigrant. I want my work to be able to address any issue I consider relevant, regardless of it being related to migration, exile, or identity.Picture: The Forgotten
