JAIME LLOPISPRINT THIS PAGE
Jaime Llopis studied drama at ESAD (Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático de Valencia) and dance and choreography at EDDC (European Dance Development Center) in Arnhem. Subsequently, Llopis graduated from a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) in Brussels in 2013. He is currently studying philosophy.
Based in Brussels since 2003, he has been working as a dancer and performer for different independent choreographers, as well as developing his own choreographic work (e.g. Make me yours tonight if I’m awake, 2009).
In his works, he tries to put in practice a series of mechanisms of de-identification.
De-identifying the object of representation.
De-identifying the subject as a performer.
De-identifying the subject as a spectator.
De-identifiyng the time and the space of representation.
Undoing the tacit logics of identity that entangle all these elements,
in an attempt to suspend expectation.
