Dancer, writer, researcher. Beatriz holds a BA in Anthropology and Literature, and completed the program Choreomundus: International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage in 2018. She is experienced in western contemporary dance. Her dance practice in contact improvisation led her to an inquiry based on ethnochoreology and phenomenology, wondering how the backgrounds of practitioners remain immanent in an improvisatory practice. She has participated in multicultural performances and site-specific interventions including museum galleries in Norway, Hungary, and London; and also staged choreographic works in Guatemala City. She has written the poetry book Hacia la tempestad [Magna Terra Editores, 2016]. Currently, Beatriz is an independent researcher in collaboration with Centro de Danza e Investigación del Movimiento at Universidad Rafael Landívar in Guatemala City.
