“My performances are always related to the space in which they happen, I like to explore and exploit the physical and / or symbolic possibilities of the place where I work; and that space helps me to make shape to the formal structure of my proposals.

It is possible that a material, a situation or an obsession triggers a process, and from that first approach I build the performance from a formal perspective analyzing the time, the space, my presence, the audience, the material…

Each time I work with fewer objects, and in the process of creation I “clean” the performance so that everything I use or everything that happens responds to the internal logic of its formal construction. I like to explore the possibilities of a single material, a single situation, a single idea. ”
