Exposure is the result of a research that started as a series of encounters between myself and an automatic photo booth. After a year of experiments and explorations, the work I will share takes the shape of a solo stage performance that deals with a vulnerability and loneliness living deep within me.
This work might be biographic. Or not.
Participants: Alicia Luz Rodríguez

Bio: Alicia Luz Rodríguez Díaz was born to become a retired Chilean actress, which she achieved at the young age of 26, leaving behind her past and baggage to pursue new challenges. She’s fit a lot of things into her life, career, and suitcase. From publishing a zine about abandoned Christmas trees to committing to a year of pink, Alicia does not allow the bounds of genre to restrict her. Now at 28, this Gemini free spirit is approaching the next interdisciplinary phase of her life: graduating from the Masters in Performance program at the Iceland University of the Arts, where everything is coming together as a practitioner of her creative world.
