Who I am…

Ready to dream, to fly, to explore new ways, to zoom them in from different angles, to put them in the same pocket, to the dreams and everyday life, to take them into movements, among risk and poetry, tension and content, danger and freedom and make them reality.

Freelancer/ physical performer

I Studied acting at the Universidad del Valle in Cali Colombia. In 2005 started my research in Contemporary Dance. In 2009- 2013 began my research in circus at the circus school Circo Para Todos in Colombia and specialized in Tight wire and Cyr wheel. From 2007 to 2015 parnered as a dancer in the Colombian company Ázoe Danza directed by Adriana Miranda, where made part of different projects as the collaboration with the company “Gallotta” in the choreography “Blik” and “Kill me but wait for me” directed by Redha Benteifour. In 2018 I got my diploma as Master in Physical Theatre from the Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Switzerland. I have been interested in pedagogy since 2015, and I started to give various courses. Up now some of them have been in the field of: theatre, dance, acrobatics and circus techniques. I have been associated as teacher in such a schools as the ballet school INCOLBALLET (Instituto Colombiano de Ballet), university ICESI (both in Colombia), and the Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Switzerland. Since 2018 I work in an own artistic project named as RadSam, where I`m researching in mixing dance-circus-theatre for performative purposes. At the moment I am a teacher collaborator from the Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Switzerland.

“The poetic Violence/Action” by Robert Díaz Díaz

A concept of theatre.  Nowadays, to say that you are doing theatre, doesn’t really say much about what you actually do; perhaps, owed to the fact that the so-called borders between the performing arts have, with time, allowed for ever more and more influence one to another.
