With several 'house artists' workspacebrussels has a long-term engagement. For the duration of 2 to 3 years, workspacebrussels is their administrative homebase, sparring partner and go-to residency space. The aim of these trajectories is to deepen and professionalise the artist's practice.
Our current house artists are:
caterina daniela mora jara
2021 - 2023
Caterina daniela mora jara is a dance researcher, performing artist, teacher and writer.
Trained in academic dance and folkloric dance, her work aims to problematise the modes of production and colonial legacy in representation ofWestern dance. Her pedagogical approach uses intimacy as procedure and explores translation as transgression. Caterina is currently a PhD candidate at SKH, Uniarts (Stockholm).
Dancing at the Crossroads (As We Walk)
2021 - 2023
A collective with Sujata Goel, Cecilia Lisa Eliceche, Carlos Maria Romero aka Atabey Mamasita, Fabian Barba, Moya Michael & Jolie Reymond Ngemi
Dancing at the Crossroads (As We Walk) is a space for coming together to write, work and converse. The six artists are a group of non-European, migrant dance professionals who have transited or are based in Flanders. Their work seeks to unveil and confront coloniality and racism in the international dance networks established in western Europe. They also constitute a mutual aid sociality of remembrance in the frame of which they cultivate love and beauty.
