Tactile VJ Cristina Maldonado: Performance that reinterprets a thriller from the 60´s by making live physical interventions to invade and damage the composition, atmosphere and situation of the scenes.
Cristina Maldonado* is a Mexican artist whose background in body movement lends a unique approach to her visual and conceptual experiments with video, sound, collage and performance, giving a palpable tactility that not only invokes the audience sensually, but also leads us to the realm of comfort and beyond. Her work unifies experimental theater, dance, participatory art, new and old media, her topics are body, communication and intimacy. She creates experiential frames such as sound installations, phone-call performances, videos and objects, all of them connected with live action. She works alone or in collaboration with artists from different disciplines and has performed in Mexico, Eastern Europe, New York and Montreal. Since 2003 she has been directing various art and theater projects in Czech Republic such as Experiment in Terror, DOX Centre for Contemporary Art (2011), Theorem of Wanting, Roxy/NoD (2009), Fact, Festival 4+4 days in motion (2004), Study on Fact and Fragility, PQ (2010), Audio-witness, Honestly Old, MeetFactory (2010), Melodrama Mexicano, Transteatral Festival (2010) *Creadores con Trayectoria 2012-14.
