Paula Almiron is a performance artist from Argentina based in Brussels.

She holds a Master in Choreography and Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels (ISAC, 2019). She studied a BFA in Theater in the National University of the Arts, in Buenos Aires (UNA, 2004-2007), where  she also graduated in the Contemporary Dance School ARTE XXI in 2008.

She works with different media, such as sound, choreography and text. Within her research she mostly proposes collective protocols to investigate how non human forces intra-act with the practices of writing text and choreography. 


Since some years she's interested in destabilizing human scales (both spatial and temporal) as the dominant plane of reference, proposing experiences that are created collectively, in which time is not linear, but multifold and diverse. Within her practice, she aims to relate to fiction as movement, and to choreography in an expanded way, not necessarily bounded to a human body.

 

Paula also worked as a performer and collaborator with artists such as Dora Garcia (SP), Louise Vanneste (BE), Wouter de Raeve (BE), Eliane Bertschi (CH), Fabrizia Fluhler (CH), Lili M.Rampre (SL), Fabian Barba and Esteban Donoso (EC), Varinia Canto Vila (CH/BE), Diana Szeiblum (AR), Fabian Gandini (AR), among others.

Her work was supported in Argentina by the National Endowment for the Arts and ProDanza, showing her work in many performance and video art festivals in Latin America and Europe.

In 2020-2021, she will be artist in residency in La Bellone Maison de Spectacle (Brussels), Villa Empain - Boghossian Foundation (Brussels), BUDA (Kortrijk), and La Serre - Arts Vivant (Montreal, Canada).
