Dance performance from Alfonso Fernández Sánchez
Alfonso Fernández Sánchez
How do you portray yourself? Are you a self-portrait of as society likes you to be? And what consequences does that entail? What does it mean to live in a marginalized body which doesn't fit into a certain standard and is often getting shamed, sexualized, ignored, and oppressed? The seventh chapter of the TELL ME project talks about the oppression suffered by the body and how it is transcribed to the outside.
Alfonso Fernández Sánchez was born on 31 March 1993 in Cornellà de Llobregat, Barcelona. After receiving his professional dance training at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona, he started working as a dancer for the young Barcelona company »IT Dansa«, directed by Catherine Allard. Since the beginning of the 2014/15 season, he worked as a soloist dancer at the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz under the direction of Karl Alfred Schreiner. Currently, he’s working on a freelance basis, building his knowledge doing his own choreographies and further expanding his own dance experience. Alfonso Fernández is a versatile choreographer and dancer, a hard worker who possesses an excellent sense of rhythm, a strong passion for music, and the creative ability to express himself through movement.
