The Comic Performer and the Language of the Soma

This is a practice based and auto ethnographic project that aims to develop somatic methodologies in the training and creative processes of clowns, currently in process and funded by the Research Office of the Pontifical Javeriana University.

 

In this research I am collaborating with Mario Escobar, a colleague professor and clown from the  Performing Arts Department at the Pontifical Javeriana University. We are devising a clown performance as practical enquiry to discover the dialogue between clown techniques and somatics, working with a mixed group of professional actors and students.

Small Format Creative Processes: Source, Producer and Performer.

This research project addressed the methodological, aesthetic and somatic implications of small format creative processes where the same person develops simultaneous roles as source, producer and performer. It was funded by the research office of the Pontifical Javeriana University of Bogotá and developed between 2012 and 2014. 

The methodological approach was autoethnographic and implied a creative process that was funded by Iberescena during an artistic residency in Scotland and a creative grant of the Pontifical Javeriana University of Bogotá. 

The products of this project are creative, scholarly and pedagogical, for more information please click on the following links:
