Esther Rodríguez-Barbero (Madrid, 1984)
Performer, choreographer, architect and researcher in the arts. Specialized in contemporary dance together with architectural studies (ETSA Valladolid), she achieved a Master in Performing Arts Practice and Visual Culture by the UCLM in collaboration with the Reina Sofía Museum. Her work operates in-between choreography, performance and architecture, using principles from these disciplines to design artistic and social practices. Her trajectory crosses different contexts activated by using operations of displacement to think about body presence and spatial relations. Lately she designs spatial practices through which the audience can experience alternative ways of engagement with specific places and the elements that are present in daily life routines. By rethinking habits and behaviours she proposes choreographic approaches in order to expand the performative space. She is currently developing an artistic research in a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) with the project Guided Tour.
