THIRD - Cohort 3
Catalina Insignares (COL) works as a choreographer and is based in Paris. As a choreographer, she’s looking for that moment when dance, touch and movement escape their disciplinary regimes and generate unintelligible, unapologetic, what-ever-like subjectivities and collectivities. Her work is mainly built through collaborations for staging, dramaturgy and performing. Since 2015 she develops a one-to-one dance piece and long-term practice titled us as a useless duet. In 2018, together with Carolina Mendonça she creates a work involving a night reading directed to sleeping bodies and titled useless land, created in the frame of the exhibition the dead are living- how to ruin an exhibition in Berlin and reactivated Elsewhere&Otheriwse (PaF), Precarious Pavillions (Brussels), MärzMusik (Berlin) and La ferme du buisson (Paris). Since 2017 she works with choreographer Myriam Lefkowitz as a performer in her immersive works, but also in a collaboration (La Facultad) that finds ways to infiltrate sensorial practices derived from their works in diverse social contexts.
Since 2018, she has started a research on how to use the sensorial and fictional means of dance to communicate with the invisible (Bouillon), particularly with the dead (ese muerto se lo cargo yo).
