I believe in co-imagination as an interdisciplinary way of creation. The meeting of different cultures, approaches, experiences, and artistic fields enriches not only dance practice but my life. Collaborative work does not only creates bridges and nodes of interaction and engages people around a common aim; it also builds strong relationships between dancers and musicians, visual artists, actors, writers.
I intend to reflect on co-imagination, and collaboration practices (from everyday life to dance practices), horizontality as a significative tool to overcome exile, separation and diaspora. I should make it clear I also consider the condition of non-migrants as susceptible subjects of exile from different perspectives. However, I want to make it clear that I don’t want my artistic practice to be determined exclusively by the fact that I am 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.
Incorporating these notions in my dance practice, I have been exploring the ways in which I could aestheticize them, translate them into actions: a choreography or a performance piece, creating a dialogue in which my personal experience could inform a universally relevant social and political issue.
