This performance came out of a student project in 2016 recreating the piece of Cocoon Dance Company MOMENTUM. After finishing my studies I performed again as part of the original cast with other students.

MOMENTUM makes a connection between the dancers and the audience through the palpable feeling of movement in a shared space. The dancers and the audience alike absorb the evolving kinetic energy just like the exhaustion, which become the driving elements of the performance.
Only the rhythm and speed unite the movements in a structural dimension. The pure physical, sweat-inducing choreography and the fusion of light and sound are generating a hypnotic energy.

+ WITCHES by Ursina Tossi

Since the Middle Ages, the figure of the witch appears extremely ambilvalent: stigmatized as a heretic, as sexually deviant and being with the devil, she was released in the transition to capitalism to persecution. At the same time, she is regarded as the guardian of knowledge about reproduction and healing as well as a sexually and economically self-determined woman. Adopted as a feminist fighter who defies the power structures and control procedures of capitalist patriarchy, she becomes a political symbol. We are exploring the meaning of the witch in our body history. We focus on the powerful and haunted body. Historical apparatus collides with pop culture fantasies and science fiction. The result is a space in which the sensual shows itself as political and the question arises: Who are the witches of today – and who pursues them?

+ REVENANTS by Ursina Tossi

Performers: Rachell Bo Clark, Julia B. Laperrière, Amanda Romero, Leah Marojevic, Rose Lindstroem

In times of crisis, monsters come to light, archetypal figures, chimeras, revengeists – the undead. Their cultural existence feeds from the lives of those who disappeared without a trace, the forgotten ones – restless creatures without voice. If history remembers the winners only, revenants are forced to find a medium through which they can become visible and through which they’re coming back to act.

16. October 2020 – tanzhaus nrw, Düsseldorf

Concept and choreography: .Dencuentro

Collective members: Constanza Ruiz Campusano, Greta Salgado and Amanda Romero.

The performers* prepare. Tensions, distance and attraction grow. For a short moment, they all appear to hover, until their bodies are suddenly hurled onto each other and they clash with vehemence. A muffled smack. The bodies entangle until they disengage again, before the next encounter starts mounting. 

.Dencuentro, confront and interweave academic dance with the traditional form of expression in “Tinku”, a Bolivian battle ritual. “SINP’A” is a piece of encounters and confrontation. The encounter during which the women braid each other’s hair, the meeting in pugilism, the encounter between the dancers* with the music and the encounter of bodies floating into each other. “SINP’A” acts in the tension between co-operation and the resistance of different identities and opens the physical confrontation as another option to celebrate life.Which is a cultural concept that is present in many practices and believes of the andean cosmovision. 

Research supported and made possible by »Sprungbrett <>Tanzrecherche NRW« in cooperation with tanzhaus nrw and PACT Zollverein, where we also presented our research work during the festival tanz nrw (click to see reviews and information).

SENSORIUM enacts the awakening of a being that discovers itself in its presence. The observers have the chance to watch this being in the act of recognizing its body, its existence and its surrounding, as if it had been born in that very moment. It is a piece that transfers the human body into a parallel dimension, where there is a chance to perceive the world that we know today anew. And the chance to make oneself present anew.

What would happen if our mind and body would be reborn and we could awaken our senses to a very perceptible level? If we could rediscover our bodies as biological matter with a very mindful perception and with the same perception rediscover our surroundings? Could we vanish the borders between the environment, our self and our body?

+ Ghost.Scape

Ghost.Scape / Fantasma.Paisaje - videowork

Ghost.Scape nace de la exploracion de danza y movimiento „Y Nosotros“ que se basa en el deseo de reflexionar con el cuerpo sobre nuestras identidades viniendo de un país principalmente andino y amazónico.

Este es un juego compuesto por los movimientos que salieron de nuestra búsqueda por intentar plasmar de donde venimos nosotros y nuestras reflexiones físicas sobre la complejidad del „de donde vienes“ en nuestra cultura .. fusionado con la conexión que establecimos con cuerpo y alma hacia el entorno en el que estábamos ese día, un pedazo de tierra que nos apropiamos por unas horas para fundirnos con el y así sentirnos mas en nosotros.

Es un intento de redescubrir la información que queda grabada en nuestros cuerpos, rasgos y comportamientos que nos dicen de dónde venimos y en qué contexto vivimos ahora de acuerdo a eso.

Performers: Jean Pierre Yllescas y Amanda Romero
Camera/ Editing: Maicol Aguilar

Music from DNGDNGDNG – continentes perdidos First track: MU Second track: Atlantida




Letras esperan, el momento de salir del alma. Algunas duran, años madurando y creciendo, extiendo el texto, lo alargo, lo acorto, lo escribo, lo borro. Me gusta, lo cambio! Ah… Notas sorprenden, melodías que suben y bajan. Susurran los ecos , estrellándose en el tiempo. Lo escucho, lo niego, lo busco, lo encuentro, lo escribo en silencio. Me gusta, lo dejo! Ah… Todo termina, cada nota sigue su camino, se acercan, se alejan, cruzan de repente sus latidos. Se acercan despacio, el texto se aleja, callados se quedan. Me gusta, lo siento! Ah… Larié, larié, larié…



(inspirado en un poema de Pablo Neruda) ¿Cuál es el cuál, ¿cuál es el cómo?, ¿quién sabe como?, ¿Cuál es el cual, ¿cuál es el cómo?, ¿quién sabe como? Conducirse, rapampampa rápampán, conducirse, rapampampa, rápampán.
