Muriel Romero and Pablo Palacio collaborate since 2007 in a project focused on the analysis and development of the interaction between body gesture and sonic gesture. The trilogy Acusmatrix, Catexis and Stocos constitute so far the result of this investigation. In this series of pieces the dancer’s activity evolve in a three dimensional sound space interacting with sonic objects that are successively transformed according to their trajectory and dynamic morphology. These works integrate in a performative context abstractions taken from other disciplines such as artificial intelligence, biology, mathematics or experimental psychology.


Muriel Romero is  a dancer and choreographer. Her work is currently focused on the investigation of generative choregraphic structures and the incorporation of abstractions taken from other disciplines such as music or mathematics. She has won several international prizes such as Moscow International Ballet Competition, Prix de la Fondation de Paris-Prix de Laussane and Premio Nacional de Danza. She’s been first soloist in some the most prestigious companies around the world including Deutsche Oper Berlin, Dresden Semper Oper Ballet, Bayerisches Staatsballet Munchen, Gran Théatre de Genéve o Compañia Nacional de Danza. During her trayectory she’s worked with some choregraphers of our time like W. Forsythe, J.Kylian, Ohad Naharin or Saburo Teshigawara. She teaches at the Professional Conservatory of Madrid.
