Bio

Cecilia Lisa Eliceche (Wallmapu, 1986) is a dancer choreographer and dance advocate based between Salvador de Bahia and Brussels. They are traversed by more than 500 years of colonialism in Abya Yala and inspired by ancestral times outside of linearity. The territories she walks inhabit her. They conceive dance as a space to practice otherwise and otherworlds. She was worked with Janet Panetta, Etienne Guilloteau, Claire Croize, DD Dorvillier, Eleanor Bauer and has been dancing for more than 10 years with Heather Kravas. Since 2016, they have been sharing life and work with Brazilian artist Leandro Nerefuh and diving in the deep waters of Ayiti. In 2020, with the guidance of Ruro Caituiro, Cecilia with the company of Leandro gave birth to divine Toya. She is thankful to Houngan Jean-Daniel Lafontant and Egbomi Nancy de Souza for their teachings and friendship.
