Statement
  • Due to my experience in different theatre troupes, I learnt about practices focused on developing research and creative processes for, in, and within public spaces and non-conventional stages.

  • I delve into streets through performative, [auto]ethnographic, somatic, and archival approaches. 

  • Doing-feeling-thinking: my research stems from embodied practices as a source of knowledge. 

  • Affections and moves

  • I stand for self-publishing, especially if it comes in the shape of a zine or a cardboard cover book. 

  • I am learning about data management, process philosophy, and the poetics of relation.

  • I believe in collaborative and interdisciplinary work.
