- DAS Choreography
Cecilia Lisa Eliceche is a Argentinian dancer, choreographer and dance advocate based in Brussels. She studied in PARTS and works as a freelancer with Eleanor Bauer, Heather Kravas, Claire Croize, Etienne Guilloteau, DD Dorvillier. She’s an assistant to ballet master Janet Panetta. She loves Dance and Craft. She conceives the body as a space of experimentation. ‘Can dance and choreography perform and think a sociality and notions of togetherness?’ she asks herself. Among her works are Unison, Cow’s Theory, Orpehus, and The Dance Concerts. ‘The non-massage dance’ and ‘Touching sessions’ are ongoing part of her practice. Currently she’s an artist in residence in WP Zimmer. She’s an active member of SOTA.
