Canal el Cedro
Luisa Luna García
am a dancer and a choreographer in continuous research of Gypsy and Ethno-contemporary dances. My creative work, takes elements of dances from the world; Tanztheater (“dance theatre”) and contemporary dance, in order to raise an alternative that explores the movement and body conscience. In addition, I look for the connection of the women with herself and with the others. Because it allows to explore from the imaginative and creative perspective in the personal and the collective way.
Actually, I am the director of Dhara Danza, a place in where you can learn and create, from different traditions of the world. On the other hand, I am also participating in Global Water Dances Bogotá (GWD) project, as the Artistic Director and I am co-director of “Cuerpo Arte – Galería Viva”
