Paloma Madrid. Stockholm-based choreographer, performer, doula and teacher.
As an active and emerging artist, she has begun to describe herself as the “poetical body investigator”. Proposing the body as a medium and raw material in constant change and knowledge-producer. Madrid works are constantly exploring the intersection between her own body in action, collaborative art and social choreography. Collaborating with artists with all kinds of physical disabilities and abilities. Her work is always searching for possibilities for the mind and body to re-think dance and choreography.
