Jimena Paz

Choreographer Jimena Paz (NYC / Europe / Argentina) will create an epilogue for her most recent dance (a collaboration with Ralph Lemon and Vicky Shick). Paz’s research is focused on the urge to move within and around opinions of foreignness, an urge rooted in the untrained body. It incorporates Murga, a protest dance form of her native Argentina. She views Murga as a way to shake what is dead in us, to shake stagnant ideas of normalcy.
