nibia pastrana santiago (PR, 1987) centers her practice on the strategic use of time and space to create choreographic events. Her work experiments with these elements to question notions of territory, fiction, laziness, eroticism, and tourism. nibia pastrana santiago’s first solo show presents a selection of works developed from 2013 to the present: lists, videos and photography.
Continuing her research trajectory on laziness, doing nothing, self-erotization, body vandalism and indisposition, two new performances are presented at Hidrante: TTTT: Thank You Tego, Thank You Trisha (2019) is a reenactment and tribute to Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Tego Calderón and American postmodern choreographer Trisha Brown. koreography i will follow you (i love you) (2019) is a durational performance in dialogue with the choreographic legacy of Los Kenton, a Dominican merengue orchestra, language, and fatigue. Both pieces are performed by: nibia pastrana santiago Pó Rodil, Ezequiel Diaz, and Luis Rivera.
cualesquiera (Any) content and forms are manifested from the flesh, the tension between anchoring the image that’s been produced and accepting its quality of irremediable oblivion.
nibia pastrana santiago lives and works in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
