Adriana Cubides Born in Vienna to Colombian parents is a freelance performer, maker and teacher.

DANCE IT OUT
I create a space to encounter the creative power of our sexual energy and dive deeply inside our bodies. Actively engaging in different ways of moving our hips, freeing our spines, and connecting with the space inside and around our hearts, we will search for the connection between lower and upper body. We will work on different ways of grounding our bodies, working with breath and with scores that help us bring our inner awareness into the space and into the way we relate to others through our bodies.
The attention is placed on a fluid quality of movement, and onto consciously activating the transformative power that is held within our body to open new spaces within ourselves.
