About the artist

Awilda Rodríguez Lora chevron-down chevron-up

Awilda Rodríguez Lora is a performance choreographer and cultural entrepreneur. Her work challenges misconceptions about womanhood through the exploration of sexuality, empowerment, and self-determination. These concepts are explored through the use of movement, sound, and video as well as through a methodology she calls the “economy of living”—which can either potentiate or subtract from her body’s “value” in the contemporary art market. Born in Mexico, raised in Puerto Rico, and working in-between North and South America and the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, Rodríguez Lora's performances traverse multiple geographic histories and realities. In this way, her work promotes progressive dialogues regarding colonial legacies and the unstable categories of race, gender, class, and sexuality. Read full bio here.
