Carolina Van Eps Jimenez

Carolina is a dancer, performer, creator and activist. She grew up in Colombia and has been living in Brussels and Ghent for several years. She is part of several artistic projects, often with a social and political commitment, inspired and challenged by the Colombian context in which she grew up.

"I work and enjoy projects that go through art (creation), artistic education, and environmental activism. My searches and explorations, some more advanced than others, focus on the links between dance and politics. The ideas of relational art in / with the world and others. The interaction between voice, movement and touch. These searches connect with what I wonder about the world and what connects me to it. Although dance (my body) is my strongest means of expression, it is no longer enough as the only ingredient in my creations and searches; I am supported by contemporary artistic practices, which take up video and sound. I am part of the CATAPA movement, and I am a founding member of the Colectivo de Mujeres Colombianas por la Paz Belgium. I am a Specialist in Artistic Education and Culture of the OIE. Master of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels in the programs, Art in Public Space (AEsp) and the Higher Institute of Arts and Choreography (ISAC) Belgium and Master of Performing Arts with emphasis on contemporary dance of the Francisco de Paula University in Bogotá, Colombia."
