Diego Echegoyen is an Argentine performance artist and researcher based in Brussels, who works, researches and activates in projects merging theatre, expanded choreography, field recording, site-specific and street performance. His practice merges artistic languages in a collective and collaborative performance making.
For his last project, What shines through two different things he developed practices of situated writing and performance composition interweaving historical and personal events, micro and macro scales of real and fictive landscapes in a storytelling enriched by choreographic scores.
