Currently in the final phase of the PhD project Space projections of intertwining bodies - a (queer) tango movement studie about the cartographical aspect of body schemas. This project is interested in the connection of bodily movement and cultural meaning and how this connection transforms, as human beings, situated in cultural practices, through movement design, reconfigure, discard, redefine their sociocultural frames.
