Karina Nathalie Suárez Bosche (1984) is a Mexican - German dancer and choreographer. She has develop mostly of her career in Mexico until 2012, when she moved to Berlin to start the Masters degree in Choreography at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz. In 2009 and for 3 years she founded and co-directed “Proyectos de Improvisación” collective. This project (still on the move) resides in Mexico city, is responsible to promote improvisation as an inclusive form of art. Karina's work has been getting recognition in the Choreography field, as well as a dancer winning awards such as: 1st place in the 2nd and 4th Contest of Contemporary Dance Choreography in Morelia, Mexico for her pieces “La flor en que se posan los insectos” (2005) and “3 Minutos” (2007). Her solo work “desierto de sillas” (2010) funded by the Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (National Culture and Arts Foundation) was in tour in several festivals and platforms of contemporary art in Mexico and recently premiered in Europe in the 1st edition of the “Såna-Festival” in Norway (2014).
She is interested in widening the dance contemporary field in a more social-political context. That means for her to provide spaces where dance is not just limited for “professional” dancers, but also a place of practice for all kind of people, expanded consciousness to the society for the importance of its own body-expression. In the performative/scenic field she is interested in provides the audience/public/people more challenges to perceive the work proposing several times new configurations of the public situation, like her work bis man den Mensch trifft, co-produced by the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, where movable walls push the audience for a closed perspective of the acts, changing also the configuration inside the space.
