My work expresses itself through Performance Art, where the artist’s and bystander’s bodys flow together in a practice that wants to reflect the social problems of their community, such as the difference between cultures and religions.
Troughout my latest projects I use technology as an instrument that can reach and be seen by more public. I use audio-visual and streaming tools to share my performances with the world: sometimes online, in real-time.
