Introduction

Juan M. Aldape/DANZAFUERZA, originally from Mexico, but internationally on the move, is an interdisciplinary ethno-hybrid-identity-crossing-process-loving dance artist. His work fuses cultural curiosity and personal reflection with a migratory aesthetic. Juan Manuel believes in the potentiality of the span of performance practices and the derivative field of curation as methodological tools that move across different modes of inquiry to present and evaluate theories and assumptions about human behavior and existence; they are a way to distort, provoke, and inspire.
