Diego is an established choreographer, director and dance anthropologist graduated from Choreomundus: International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage. He received full funding from the European Commission for two years to conduct research on dance creation between humans and AI dancers during his Master’s studies in France, Norway, Hungary and the UK.
He has been guest researcher at RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion of the University of Oslo, where he carried out fieldwork research for his Master’s Thesis ‘Embodying the Artificial: Human/AI Co-creation of dance’. He also holds degrees in Dance and Communication Sciences, postgraduate degrees in Theatre Production and Cultural Policy as well as several courses in fields such as Aesthetics, Phenomenology, Neurosciences, Motion Capture and AI.
Diego is now initiating his new dance creation and research project ‘Dancing embryo’ in which he addresses a set of intersectional issues from cyborg anthropology, posthumanism and embodied cognition. His project is based on the ethnographic documentation of the co-creation of dance between him and an evolving AI dancer developed by Benedikte Wallace.Back to people
