Paola Escobar 

Paola Escobar is a Colombian choreographer, performer and educator whose work bridges different traditions and disciplines focusing in the intersection between rhythm and movement. Escobar’s practice interweaves her Latin-American background with her interest in the flamenco tradition, African culture, and contemporary art, and reflects on cultural identity, hierarchies of power, cultural perception, sustainability and the reiterative search for a place of belonging. Escobar designs inclusive experiences and programs that offer multiple access points to activate individuals and communities through the body in movement.


As a choreographer Escobar got the National Award from the Ministry of Culture in Colombia (2005) and the Annenberg Beach House Residency (2019) among other recognitions. Escobar has created more than 30 choreographic works, 6 dance films, and has performed in Spain, France, Portugal, Canada, US, Cuba, Colombia and Brazil.
