Luis Garay

Through choreographic systems and explorations on exercise, task and labour, Luis Garay dives into environments that could challenge ideas of productivity, time and presence. He often works with ecstatic bodies, obsessed with GIFS, machines and mechanisms. Nowadays, he gravitates towards ideas of shared imagination and the inhuman, passivity and receptivity. He is interested in habit and repetition, iteration and alienation. He recently presented his work at ARCOmadrid, Walker Art Center, Malta Festival Poznań, Haus der Kunst Munich, Centre Pompidou Metz, Montpellier Danse, ROHM Theatre Kyoto, GAM, Panorama Festival Brazil, among others. He recently mentored students from the MA Studios PARTS,Brussels and worked as Outside Eye for the production “Nightcore” by Luis Krawen in Munich Kammerspiele. In Buenos Aires he created the the San Martin Theatre Laboratory of Action, an experimental studies program for performative creators. He holds an MA in performance studies from the ATW Institute, Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany.
