CA is an interdisciplinary artist and educator, based in Tiohtià:ke – Mooniyang – Montreal since 2019. She is interested in creative, transformative and communal experiences that address critical intersectional concerns. Currently, they are a board member of Teesri Duniya Theatre, where she has developed two community engagement projects.

CA is affiliated with Hexagram, Milieux-LeParc, COHDS, ALLab, and SenseLab-3e at Concordia University. They are an editor and workshop facilitator at Kodama Cartonera, an independent publishing house born in Tijuana, Mexico, in 2010.

In Colombia, her collaborative work resulted in co-creating the feminist theatre collective “Vale la pena ser Callejeras” (BOG), a laboratory focused on artist women’s discourses, theatre training and collaborative methodologies of embodiment and creation for public spaces.

CA’s research-creation approach is performative, feminist, and (an)archival. Her perspectives stem from embodied practices as a source of knowledge intertwining processes of doing-feeling-thinking. Due to their experience in different theatre troupes, CA learned about diverse techniques focused on developing research and creative methods for, in, and within public spaces and non-conventional stages.
