Tell us a little about yourself. How would you like to introduce yourself?
I am a lover of art, beauty and tenderness. I feel creative in the hybridization of scenic languages to create a subjective poetic vision .
Where do you currently live and where would you say your home is?
I currently live in Barcelona. I have been looking for my home from a very early age, perhaps that is why I have created a piece called HOME. I believe it is within me in connection with nature, but nonetheless I continue to search for this physical place.
What does a typical day on work and also a day off consist of?
A day at work can have many facets, from responding to calls, writing proposals, giving creation courses, rehearsing, dreaming and visualizing the costumes of my new creation, dancing,... A day off would be going to the beach, learning about astrology, swim and laugh with friends.
How did the performing arts become your main tool of expression?
I started going to theater class when I was 13 and what I felt when I went on stage was so exciting that I understood that I wanted to continue investigating this sensation in the body. And that I did, it took many forms and continues to expand. The performing arts or I prefer to say the living arts are full of new creative formulas. It is a sacred space where being and essence can be revealed and where freedom of expression coexists.
What inspires you to create?
The living and the mystery of our humanity. For me, creation is nothing more than an attempt to approach the understanding of our existence from the intimate and close to the immeasurable. Sometimes I find inspiration in a very everyday act, observing people, sometimes in a book, a drawing, in another artist's phrase, in astrology and particularly approaching the planet Venus.
What is your favorite place in the world and why?
The sea, because it frees me, reconnects, gives me back to my girl who wants to enjoy and enjoy life .
