Vertigo Power of Balance: SHAPE ON US
Nine dancers, multiple physical abilities, encountering a stage that provides grounding for expressing their capabilities, their needs, their experiences. The artistic process is based on a common understanding by the group of dancers - to tell the truth. This comes about through moments of stability and instability, of risk-taking, of tension and extreme relations, of reality and imagination, of support, loneliness, vulnerability, and love - in a space that evolves from separate bodies and their personal stories to the creation of one body, a connected human tissue that is soft and comforting.

In 2000, at 20, he started working as a choreographer with the setting-up of Phrasal group. In 2004, he joined Mayumaná Company for four years, as choreographer and artistic coordinator.
