Extasis Digital

Extasis Digital is a project that researches the body in the digital experience, the action and interaction through technology, resulting in a dance for camera piece. It was created in collaboration with director Yanina Orellana (GDL) and Yvonne Lacombe, Los Angeles based choreographer, who responded to scores generated for digital communication. The resulting piece is a visual interpretation of the somatic responses during these sessions of saturation with stimuli and information.

Director Statement

I’m a human who is moved by pleasure. I deeply enjoy moving in solitude and with company: to embody energy, to tune into a collective pulse and to inhabit the space completely. My creative aspirations are developed through a holistic lens. My kinesthetic research has a somatic approach and welcomes the various influences that my identity brings, as a mexican woman, to be able to share myself with an honest presence.
