Over recent years, she has developed an intense activity as a commissioner, specifically through research initiatives such as Investigación artística y aventura (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Huarte, 2018), Documentar el olvido (2018, Filmoteca de Zaragoza), international seminars such as Podría quien te recuerda (Reina Sofía Museum, 2017), Cuerpos, Desórdenes y Democracias (Matadero Madrid 2016), or the Ser Público festival (La Casa Encendida (2016).
She published the books Danza contemporánea, espacio público y arquitectura (2008), Práctica e Investigación (2010, with José A. Sánchez), 10 textos en cadena y unas páginas en blanco (2012, with Cuqui Jerez), Componer el plural. Cuerpo, escena, política (2016, with Diego Agulló) and Dirty Room (2017, with Juan Domínguez)
The seminar is based on two main premises for analysis: 1) distinguish between ''political dance'' and ''the politics of
dance'', and 2) examine how the bodies continuously travel outside of themselves to become other bodies, incarnate other experiences, run from themselves, or expand their potency.
*Victoria Fortuna obtained her PhD in Performance Studies from Northwestern University. She specialized in Latin American theatrical dance, dance as a form of social and political organization, archive practices and cultural stories about dance from a transnational perspective.

This conference will focus on the political commitment of the scene, beyond merely denouncing the different systems of exploitation of the bodies, focusing on the affirmative power of the reinvention of bodies and corporealities.
