About

Florencia is a London based dancer and visual artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is strongly inspired by a great metaphysical fear which is at the root of all ancient theatre. *      

Having investigated Japanese Butoh among other forms of Oriental theatre, she creates a physical language drawing a force that emanates from her own presence in a conversation with the unseen.
