Adel Hernandez is a Queer Tejanx-Chicanx dance and performance artist. They use movement from the hips to the chest, and throughout the limbs, isolation, and delays of movement exploring and responding to our cultural terrain. The movement-based work produced comes from their ancestors and their queerness. They make work that tells stories of liminal beings and landscapes through contemporary dance and performance art. They received a Master of Arts in Performance Studies at New York University, and a Bachelor of Arts double majoring in Theater, and The Arts concentrating in Dance at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School.
“The San Antonio art world, is so unique and welcoming that we are open to the future of new possibilities, especially in dance. The programming of NLI will provide me the skills to take on leadership work, as well as advocacy for the community, which is exciting.”
