Artist:
Maria Jerez

Her work travels "between" choreography, cinema and visual arts. Since 2004, she has made pieces that explore the relationship with the viewer as the space in which the modes of representation are put into crisis. From "El Caso del Espectador" to her last pieces "Blob" and "Yabba" this relationship has mutated from a place of "understanding" of theatrical and cinematographic conventions, that is, from the expertise, to the intentional loss of references where the artist, the piece and the spectator behave towards each other as strangers.

She produces the performances: “El Caso del Espectador” (2004), “This Side Up” (2006), “The Perfect Alibi” (2011-12), “ba-deedly-deedly-deedly-dum ba-boop-be-doop!” (2014), “Alma de Rímel & The Glammatics” (2015) , “Blob” (2016, inside her project “What Is Third”) and “Yabba” (2017)
She made the films: “Maria Gaat Naar School“ (2017) with Edurne Rubio and “The Movie” (2008) inside the project “The Neverstarting Story” a collaboration with Cristina Blanco, Amaia Urra and Cuqui Jerez with whom she has collaborated in several projects
Since 2010 she co-organizes: Living Room Festival (Madrid) with Juan Domínguez, Luis Úrculo and Cuqui Jerez
She has co-curated: PICNIC SESSIONS 2017, CA2M, Móstoles (Madrid)
She teaches at: Máster en Práctica Escénica y Cultura Visual (Madrid)
She is currently working on her projects: “Maria goes to School” a research on learning processes, knowledge and language that inverts the roles of teaching in different schools in Europe, "Spangberguianismo" a translation in collaboration with Alejandra Pombo of the book "Spangbergianism" by Marten Spangberg into Spanish, “The Boggie-Woogie Ghost” (2018) a film with Silvia Zayas and “THE PARADOXICAL BEING WITH MIXED-UP HAIRS” (premiere February 2019)
