Bio

portrait Amparo

I am a performer, choreographer, teacher, activist and researcher from Argentina. I currently live and work between Amsterdam, Paris and Buenos Aires.

I have been working the last years interested in:

Thinking and setting new creation perspectives in dance, putting in relation people from different fields, generations, social context and nationalities;

Researching the relationship between Art and Science as conceptual discourses and potential subjective knowledge. I have been working on the paradigm of complexity within the framework of Tensegrity applied to bodies;

Thinking and making visible the relationship between Politics and Art, and creating new spaces of encounter and artistic activism;

Working through dance in contexts of socio-economic emergency, in particular with groups of young people and women in a situation of social risk in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and overseas;

As a maker I work in a transdisciplinary way, exploring theatrical and non-theatrical spaces, putting in relation professional with non professionals and researching how audiences could be engaged physically, emotionally and conceptually.

Currently, my main research is around the concept of transformation/alchemy and reciprocity.
