Rodrigo Sobarzo


18 September to 19 October 2018


Arsenic, in Lausanne

Tanzhaus, in Zurich

The performance artist Rodrigo Sobarzo was on a month-long residency in Switzerland, developing his research <<mUseo de AguA>>. In this residency, he focused on theelectrical side of music and worked on direct links between it and water, as a primal source.

During this month, he conducted the residency in two important performing arts centers in Switzerland: the Contemporary Performing Arts Center Arsenic, in Lausanne, and the centre for contemporary dance and performance practice Tanzhaus Zürich.

Rodrigo is an associate artist of the Centro Nave, in Chile, and his research happened in the context of a collaboration between Nave, Arsenic and Tanzhaus, supported by the Ministry of Culture of Chile and Coincidencia.
