Kathleen Gonzalez

A Melbourne-based Colombian experimental-contemporary artist, ethnodance writer, dance performer, cultural producer, artistic director and founder of Tunjos y Cantaros Ethnologic Dance Company.

Kathleen’s practice combines multicultural, multi-spiritual and global ancestral origins, investigated through dance laboratories and ritualistic experiences connecting the inner and outer-self. Kathleen’s work explores the space between the rationality of the physical senses and the mystery of psychic and mythical lands, combining unusual, experimental, creative and inspirational new performance processes.

Kathleen’s research references include historical archives based on anthropologic statements, and she has named the concept of her investigation Ethnodanceology, a process that proposes ideas, creates dialogues and opportunities for cultural development, considers new multi-ethnic phases and prepares for the future diversity of expression.
