I was born in Carabanchel, Madrid in 1989. I am a choreographer and curator.

In 2016 I finished the MA in Performing Practice and Visual Culture by Artea/MNCARS and I will complete a BA in Philosophy soon. 
My practice unfolds into different formats in relation to the people with whom I work. My work focuses on the search for tools to make sense and to compose spaces that allow other ways of doing and relating. I am a member of the choreographic collective Twins Experiment, along with Laura Ramírez, where we develop work that has a lot to do with friendship, life and affections, and which materializes in three scenic pieces, two laboratories. and a reading club. I think and act Saliva, a long-term curatorial research project, with Andrea Rodrigo. Together we think about devices of complicity and other ways of creating meaning and sensibilities. I develop Bastante Algo, Other Furniture, together with Ignacio de Antonio, a project for the manufacture of furniture and objects that takes place at the intersection of design and choreography.

Currently I'm starting a choreographic and curatorial serie called: Blooming-florescencia, that addresses other ways of producing knowledge, and sensibilities which mobilize other modes of sense making, other cosmologies. One of the main questions that Blooming-florescencia sustains and deal with, is: Can we put aside our need to rationally comprehend everything that surrounds us and facilitate the labour of our imagination and senses? It is a large project that takes the structure of the seasons as a model for developing various proposals in collaboration with different people. The first season embrace what lies beyond standard perception, cognition and experience, and its ability to produce realities.

I have shown works in contexts such as: Center for the Performance Research NY,, Archeologías del Futuro ARG, Museo del Chopo MEX, Zeitraumexit DE, INTacto VIT, La Poderosa BCN, Antic Teatre BCN, La Caldera BCN, La Casa Encendida MAD, Naves de Matadero Madrid MAD, CA2M MAD, Conde Duque MAD, PAF FR, INAE UY.
