Pepa Ubera is a freelance dance artist based in London whose choreographic practice expands into curatorial projects and the use of video in performance. Her work challenges social structures, questioning how the body behaves in the current context, mediating real time spaces as opportunities to deal with the unknown and the poetic as tools for transformation.
She will be in Australia on a residency in partnership with Dance4 (UK), from January 17 – March 12 2019.
Pepa will use the residency to experiment and design scores in which we can rethink methodologies for progression and success. She envisages a social environment for horizontal activities and dreams that happens in a circular space occupied by the audience and performers with no hierarchical structure.
She will be in residence at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith, 29 January – 9 February. Pepa will then travel to Tasmania to participate in a 2 week residency at Tasdance in Launceston, 11 – 22 February.
Pepa Ubera will present her research at the Drill Hall, Critical Path on Saturday 9 March at 6pm.
