Ciudad de México, 1988

Her practice explores and observes the body and choreography as an expansive articulator, both retentive and experimental, traversing different narratives and pluralities of existence. She is interested in visual arts, cinema, stage work, and occasionally her encounters with the mainstream. She directed the short film “TIERRA,” which was selected for various film festivals such as the Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival in Calgary, Canada, where it won the Programmer’s Choice Award for Best Short Film, the Guanajuato International Film Festival, MICGénero, the Seattle Queer Film Festival, and the prestigious Outfest Fusion QTBIPOC Film Festival 2023, through which “TIERRA” becomes part of the cinematic archive of UCLA University in Los Angeles, California. It also had an exclusive screening at GAVLAK Gallery in 2022. Regarding the short film, Rolling Stone magazine (USA) commented, “Wonderfully directed.”
She has presented as an artist in museums such as the University Museum of El Chopo (UNAM), where she served as the general coordinator of the “TIERRA” Cycle in 2022. There, she also presented her work/installation “SE ENCUENTRAN SE ACOMPAÑAN” with the support of the Nelson Mandela Chair and the Botanical Garden of IB-UNAM, at the MUAC (University Museum of Contemporary Art-UNAM), and in spaces such as the National Palace of Fine Arts. In 2018, she was part of the Dance Advisory Council-UNAM led by Evoé Sotelo. Her work has been seen by millions worldwide and has reached some of the most unexpected places, such as Times Square NYC, through Apple Music.
In 2022, she served as the creative director and artistic curator of Bomba Estéreo’s album “Deja,” as well as the director of the short film and music video “TIERRA.” Since 2023, she has been part of the Youth Council for Cultural Dissemination at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
