"You’re from the wind, they told me once. I want to be water, we said to each other again. The truth is that I’m of aquatic fiery flights, like the skin, from the blood, and to the bone. That is how I finally understood it and allowed myself to dream forever."

About me

My work relies in certain points of intersection between Dance and Word. 

I was born in Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on April 24, 1975. I lived in the city of La Plata, Buenos Aires; and then in Esquel, Chubut, Argentine Patagonia. I currently live in Spain.

I have been developing artistic teaching proposals for more than 25 years and actively participated in creative research processes with numerous premiered works. My scenic quest is the articulation of different artistic languages. From that perspective I created the Experimental Tango Encounter (Meeting). I was invited as a dancer-actress and teacher to events in Germany, Austria, Sweden, Uruguay, Chile, Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, and Argentina. 

I studied Ballet (Bahía Blanca), Contemporary Dance (La Plata), Specialization in Contemporary Dance Trends (UNA, Buenos Aires), and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology (UNLP, La Plata). I entered the universes of tango and theater  through active participation in plays, which aroused a deep interest in me that led me to take numerous courses, workshops and seminars with renowned teachers.

As a teacher, I was in charge of professorships in public institutions of Artistic Education (2005 to February 2023) in the Faculty of Music, Visual Arts, Theater, Classical Dance, Special Education, among others; in Esquel, Chubut-Argentine Patagonia, and La Plata, Province of Buenos Aires. I was coordinator of the Theater degree (2018/2019). I taught numerous dance workshops and have been summoned as a Jury in artistic tournaments, organized by the Secretariat of Culture and Education of the Province of Chubut (Certámenes Culturales Evita) and the Province of Buenos Aires (Torneos Juveniles Bonaerenses).

Since 2008 I have been a member of the Grupo Teatro del Tablón, directed by Daniel García Belardinelli, with whom we develop projects that merge dance and theater. Outstanding works of this research are: “I don't know what your eyes have done to me”; “Provocation to the Winter”; “Marathon”; “Bahía Blanca”; and “Neither does my love”.

In 2009, together with Rosalie Wanka (www.rosaliewanka.com), we founded the Cía. Quiero Ser Agua, an artistic exchange platform with production bases in Argentina, Germany, and Austria. The created works of our own authorship and interpretation were presented in Europe and Latin America. Among them: “Late”, “Mariposas” and “El vicio”. In 2014 we closed the cycle of the Company with the project “Escarabajeando or La Mantis Religiosa”, continuing our collaboration under our own name, creating “Body () Territory () Memory” (2016) and “Becoming / Devenir” (2019); "Asymmetrical Encounters" (2021-2023).

In 2021, I wrote the work “7 steps” during my stay as artist in residence at Villa Waldberta (Germany).

In 2023, I was invited by the dancer and teacher Nidia Martínez Barbieri, to a period of artistic residency, which took place at SITE Stockholm (Sweden). We investigate ideas that articulate theatrical and dance languages. The “Pulsión” project (provisional title) consists of creating a performance piece. Currently, in creative process.
