We are so accustomed to controlling our emotions blocking out what we feel. The mind denies  what the body wants, even denying what it needs, our sexuality and our sleep.

Modern life and current systems have trained us to work at all costs, moving us away from our brutal nature. We forget to trust our instincts, which has led our bodies to lose communication with our minds.

In this work, I attempt to listen from another perspective, one that is more connected to my own nature and to regain the satisfaction and pleasure of some of my basic needs: sleeping and thus dreaming , attentive to the messages the body has for the mind.

Macho Man XXI tackles with a sense of humor the effects of gender violence taking place in the chaotic, surreal and exotic Mexican Culture.

This gender conflict enrolled into a social legacy and displayed nowadays through the medias and their standards as well as  through an underlying violence.

Macho Man XXI plays with all standards, Men/Women and sexuality. The piece takes its roots in fear, exhibiting a submissive, perverted state and a non recognition of self.

 Waters of Forgetfulness

Waters of Forgetfulness

The water contains images, thoughts and feelings.

The woman cleans her stained body and her soul in the water. 

Men do not exist without the water.

The man and woman are intertwined, being one in the water.

The water and the human are in harmony. Water in a life cycle.

That water that has an unlimited ability to drive metaphors and communicates its purity to contact.

The choreographic piece Religare tries to bring the power of dance as a ritual that fosters and reconciles the bond of the concrete with the non-concrete, of the body and the spirit.

Religare, explores for a place which movement and rhythm try to expose the paradox between the material and the abstract.

Religare aims to commemorate the origin and permanent cycle of art as a abstractation of life and reconciliation with mysticism.


In the choreography of Religare the movements will be characterized by artistic creativity. Love, poetry and hope transcend their territory and impact where you see, hear and feel. At the origin of Dance this transcendence is recognized by the achievement of aesthetic and plastic expressions deep, sensitive and transcendent despite the fact that dance is considered an ephemeral art.
