Maricel Alvarez Lecture, Wednesday, July 15 at 6pm.
June 26, 2020
Maricel Alvarez is an actress, theatre director, choreographer and curator. Her practice develops at the intercrossing of theater, performance and visual arts, blending the boundaries where the body, as artistic and critical device, may reveal itself. This essentially interdisciplinary approach is reflected in her artistic and academic background: taking Literature at Universidad de Buenos Aires and courses with renowned masters in theater and contemporary dance.
Since 1999 she holds close artistic collaboration with playwright and director Emilio García Wehbi. She has also worked with El Periférico de Objetos, Sophie Calle, William Kentridge, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Santiago Loza, Woody Allen, Alejandro Tantanian, Nora Lezano, Iván Fund, Edgardo Cozarinsky, Ana Katz and Diana Szeinblum, among other artists.
Her work was showcased in stages, galleries and museums in Argentina and abroad, such as Teatro Colón, Teatro Argentino de La Plata, Teatro General San Martín, Centro Cultural Kirchner, Espacio de Arte-Fundación OSDE, Konzert Theater Bern (Switzerland), Berliner Festspiele (Germany), Akademie der Künste Berlin (Germany), Museo Universitario del Chopo and Teatro El Galeón in Mexico City.
As a lecturer, she imparted courses and seminars at Ludwig Maximilian Universität (Germany), Freies Universität Berlin (Germany), Kyoto University of Arts and Design (Japan), Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Theatertreffen in Berlín (Internationales Forum), Centro de las Artes de Guanajuato (Mexico) and Foro Shakespeare (Mexico).
Participated as performer and/or director in festivals in Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Chile, Spain, France, Japan, Mexico and Switzerland. In 2016 she was Artist in residence at Museo Universitario del Chopo in Mexico City.
A faculty member at the Theatre and Performance art Master Program of the Universidad Nacional de las Artes (UNA), member of the Arts Council of the City of Buenos Aires and Senior Curator at the Bienal de Performance de Argentina (BP.17 & BP.19).

Furthermore, the program is interdisciplinary, offering artists of all media and stages of their development the opportunity to refine their vision
