Woman on running machine against a black background is a performance piece that works as a kind of x-ray of residents of more humble neighbourhoods. The woman reflects on: textile over-production, capitalism, entertainment, culture, language, nicknames and the service sector. But, above all, this story is laughter and thought.

Textual descriptions embrace physical details. An actress moving like a bull in its pen, like a kid in a ballpark, like guerrilla fighters in a tropical jungle. Basically a hand-to-hand between word and movement approached with humour and thoughtfulness.

Dance the word, tell the gesture.

Alessandra García, Malaga. In ten years she’s set up and dissolved a company, entered the world of performance and become a teacher. Her work is in the line of postdramatic and participatory theatre. She feels closer to contemporary art than to theatre.

Aquella Postura was a site-specific piece for collective performance Vulva, curated and created by Elena Alonso and shown at the Matadero in Madrid, which brought together 12 female artists with a strong national presence. She is also behind Patrimoni, part of the #Portals project by Shared Studios between Malaga and San Francisco, and she has toured with No es registren converses d’interès by Roger Bernat as a performer.
