Francisca Espinoza



From the enjoyment of exploring the body's capacities, brushing the edges and surrendering, softening limits, releasing structures, and daring to... pour out a body, a potential body, articulate a structure, a possible structure, bring forth a flow, resisting the pause, letting oneself be prompted beyond preconceived notions.

The technical-conceptual principles for approaching movement practice involve coordinating and organizing movements that embrace disassociation, regular and irregular rhythmic patterns to create sequences of movement, using pulse as a way to establish a perception and temporal understanding where the movement resides, cadence as a flow that listens and engages in a dialogue with rhythm and its temporal configurations that contribute to rituals of bodily patterns evoking presence and interaction with others.

Empowerment and endurance stem from the efficiency found in the state of alertness that grants us access to interpretation within practice and its unfolding.

A Chilean dance artist, both creator and director, she has worked on productions such as "Cartas de Navegación," "Buscando a Meg," "Monólogos," "Clásica," and "Forsale." As a performer, she has collaborated on works directed by Rodrigo Chaverini, Paula Sacur, and Ernesto Orellana, and has appeared in short films directed by Daniel Marabolí, Lucia Acuña, Alejo Moguillansky, and Theresa Wingert. She has taught classes at the University of Chile for six years.

She holds a Bachelor's degree in Arts with a focus on Dance from the University of Chile and also pursued a Bachelor's degree in Arts with a focus on Percussion for two years at the same university. She has furthered her studies under the guidance of masters such as David Zambrano, Laja Field, Akira Yoshida, Wim Vandekeybus, Peter Jasko, Rakesh Sukesh, Anton Lachky, Damian Jalet, Sahi Fara, Francisco Córdoba, Linda Kapetanea, Josef Frucek, and Meg Stuart.
