CAMILA ARROYO is a movement artist, choreographer, performer, and director. her work explores modes of creation which transform and deform the boundaries of dance and choreography, always seen from a latin american feminist lens. in her practice she is constantly asking, not only what can choreography be, but what can choreography do? camila’s work seeks to expand notions of the choreographic by playing within the intersections of dance, film, performance, sculpture, critical theory, and other formats which she investigates as expanded fields of sensible, aesthetic, and political exploration. always traversed by interdisciplinary collaboration and movement improvisation, camila’s practice is committed to the choreopolitical potential of embodied experiments.

her choreographic and video work has been shown in triennale milano, museo experimental el eco, museo de arte moderno, museo jumex, center for performance research, the vernacular institute, muac unam, centro cultural españa; as well as in festivals such as dance camera west, in/motion international dance film festival, pool tanz internationale film festival, the fashion film festival milano, and the international contemporary dance festival of the biennale di venezia.
