REGRESS is a project that describes how Guillain-Barre Syndrome can forge many changes in a human’s lifestyle, such as giving up activities we do daily or adapting to new physical limitations and special needs – experiences that can lead to anxiety, depression or other psychological challenges. A rare disorder where the body’s immune system attacks the nerves. The damage to the nerves causes muscular weakness and often paralysis. This project seeks to communicate through the body to create awareness about the social isolation that this syndrome can cause. Making a difference in people’s lives through solidarity and compassion is a great motivator to always do and be your best.

Guillain Barre Syndrome it sculpts us into someone who understands more deeply, hurts more often, appreciates more quickly cries more easily, hopes more desperately, loves more openly, and lives more passionately.

‘It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop’.

Daniela began her career as a dancer in the National Ballet of Colombia before completing a Bachelor of Choreography and Contemporary Dance at Superior Academy of Arts, Bogota.As Choreographic Director of Plonova Dance, Daniela has presented several works including ‘Borderlines’ (Hong Kong International Choreography Festival), and ‘Shapes & Shadows’ (ARA Darling Quarter Theatre, Sydney).
