Maricel Alvarez is a stage and film actress, director, choreographer and curator. Her practice develops at the intercrossing of theater, performance and visual arts, blending the boundaries where the body, as artistic and critical device, may reveal itself. This essentially interdisciplinary approach is reflected in her artistic and academic background: taking Literature at Universidad de Buenos Aires and courses with renowned masters in theater and contemporary dance.
Since 1999 she holds close artistic collaboration with Emilio García Wehbi. She has also worked with El Periférico de Objetos, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Sophie Calle, William Kentridge, Santiago Loza, Rubén Szuchmacher, Woody Allen, Alejandro Tantanian, Martín Churba, Nora Lezano, Iván Fund, Edgardo Cozarinsky, Ana Katz, Nicolás Prividera and Diana Szeinblum, among other artists and companies.
Her work was showcased in stages, galleries and museums in Argentina and abroad, such as Centro de Experimentación del Teatro Colón, Centro de Experimentación Contemporánea del Teatro Argentino de La Plata, Teatro General San Martín, Centro Cultural Kirchner, Espacio de Arte-Fundación OSDE, Konzert Theater Bern (Switzerland), Berliner Festspiele (Germany), Akademie der Künste Berlin (Germany), Museo Universitario del Chopo and Teatro El Galeón (INBA) in Mexico City.
