Cecilia Lisa Eliceche is an Argentinian dancer, choreographer, dance advocate and witch. She loves craft, rigor, sophistication, discipline and magic. She studied in Escuela de Danza Bahia Blanca, PARTS (Belgium) and is a Guest Researcher at UC Berkeley with focus on post-colonial thought and the Black Radical Tradition. She is fascinated by the endless potential of the body and movement and conceives dance as a site to experiment and rethink notions of democracy, community and the political, as well as challenging colonialism. Her current focus is experimenting with forms of conjuring encounters. In the past two years she has been devoted to prof. Nadia Ellis and artist Leandro Nerefuh.
