Director Biography - Maybel Ovalles

I am a transdisciplinary artist—performer, poet, facilitator, writer, producer, visual and audiovisual crafter. I investigate pathos, mythos and the organization of archetypal fields to gestate experiences that offer us to become aware of our bodymind content, the unknown, and the threads that bind us together.

I work mixing art, ancestral, mystical, and systemic foci to create innovative experiences that direct us towards wholeness, outlining our impact as creators of our lives.

Director Statement

I share the process of creating myself through art, my work is a confession, a testimony. I make a performance, my work is not performative, there is real action, there is engagement: I am engaging my own life, solving my questions and transits, healing myself. Sharing it with the public is part of the engagement process. I understand that as I share the creation of myself I am also sharing an order of understanding and reflection, a language that I have codified in my somatic expression.
