Allí viene la nube oscura, ya no es nube gris, ni blanca.

Juracán is coming again… How do we prepare for the imminent? What remains after I'm gone? Where is god? Am I animal or machine? What is the difference?  What is language? What is normal? What are pain and pleasure? What is nothing? Anhedonia? How is nothing also something? 


This untitled work in progress is a transdisciplinary emic exploration where I experiment with my creation story and with the creation myth of Guabancex, Taíno cemi of chaos. Together we will listen and move around a soundscore ranging from the archives of personal memory and internal monologues to weather forecasts and machine noise. This sonic choreography will become one of the (“underscores”) guiding our improvisation. Part of this work is in pitch-darkness. There will be the  use of strobe lights and loud noise.

I was born in Borikén, colonially known as Puerto Rico. I am a transdisciplinary artist in dialogue with issues including political action, climate crisis, the problematics of the gender binary and race discrimination within the mixed context I inhabit as a Boricua. My academic studies from the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón specialized in theater and dance. I was the artist in residence for “Melaza: decolonizing stories” (2018-2023), collaborating with Boston based company Danza Orgánica directed by Mar Parrilla. Most of my practice navigates around public spaces. Everybody is invited to actively interact. I explore endurance, durational and site specific methods of working to create systems of chance that allow a collaborative meta-communication about/with surrounding ecosystems.


This work is presented by the University of California, Riverside, Department of Dance and created in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Fine Arts degree in Experimental Choreography.
