Niurca Márquez is an artist/researcher whose work is fed by her diverse experiences as a dancer/bailaora, scholar and woman of unending curiosity. She is particularly interested in notions of identity, cultural memory and ritual in flamenco within a contemporary framework, as well as the multiple layers of communication and understanding in the form and how these relate to social discourse and processes of decolonization. Her approach is based on her understanding of the thought-body and of a variety of somatic techniques that is both conceptual and empirical, informed by her hybrid/liminal sense of self.
