Alondra Castellanos Arreola is a choreographer and performer born in Mexico and based in Amsterdam. She graduated from The Mime School at The Academy of Theatre and Dance (AHK) in 2015, and she is currently doing a Master program in Visual Anthropology at Goldsmiths University of London. Her practice lies at the intersection of theatre, performance and visual arts with a particular focus on the use of space and questions regarding materiality. She is interested in how the human body moves with an object and the affective relation created between the two. In her practice, she is often responding meticulously to the characteristics of the space where the performance will take place, affecting the audience’s encounter with the work differently each time it is being presented.
