ABOUT

Olga is a multi-award winner artist, she has collaborated with theater, musical and dance companies as well in multidisciplinary projects in Canada, USA and Colombia. She holds an MFA in dance at York University of Toronto. Olga is original from Bogotá- Colombia and currently working with exchange projects between Colombia and Canada.

“I consider the arts a basic link in the process of building community and society.   As a choreographer and dancer that lives in a contemporary world I explore my personal reality as a woman whose life is affected by cultural heritage but also by global information, technology and all the movement in time, space. and energy.

The dialogue and contrast between movement, sound, music, gesture, voice and context are  important elements in the development of my creations. I am interested in multidisciplinary works and I pursue the collaboration with artists from different cultural backgrounds that work with performing and visual arts.”
