We are CO-INSPIRANTS, a Chilean collective dedicated to theoretical and practical experimentation around the performing arts from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Our work began in the year 2015 with the Cenit project, and since then, we collaborate with artists from the areas of dance, theater, literature, and music, with whom we investigate and prioritize the creation process rather than its result.
The collective seeks to combine different languages to create stage devices, which aim to problematize the statute of the body on the stage.
