is an artist working in and on dance. She has been developing her projects moving between choreographic pieces, performances, publications and educational activities, whilst also working in collaboration with other artists. Her practice has been informed by the experience of living and working predominantly in the Latin-American context. She holds an MA in Dance from Trinity Laban (UK) and a postgraduate diploma in Semiotics from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (BR).
During her residency at K3, Clarissa proposes to explore the concept of care as a speculative choreographic practice. She is interested in what happens to the body and to dance when we pay attention to the question of how to care. Searching for bodies that defy gravity, neither vertical nor horizontal, that are leaning themselves to others in a vulnerable position. She will investigate how a practice based on being out of one’s own axis is capable of bringing people and other beings together in an interdependent relation.
