Cristina Pérez Sosa
ES/ Islas Canarias
Graduated with a Tourism Degree and has a diverse background in professional dance.
I started my career as a dancer, which sparked my interest for Arts Production / Management. That has, over time, become my primary passion.
After years of living in big cities (Madrid, London, Shanghai), I eventually returned to the relative peace of Gran Canaria. From this base, I now pursue my work as a freelance producer (and occasional professional performer).
From early on, I worked as Tour Manager & Production Assistant of MASDANZA, The international contemporary dance festival of the Canary Islands. During 13 years in the role, I had the luxury of developing an international network in the contemporary dance and performance world.
While in London, I spent three years as Assistant Production Manager at TripSpace Projects, a popular East London cultural space committed to professional contemporary dance training and performance, and community yoga classes. It was during my time at TripSpace that I started to work as a freelance ‘producer’.
Over the years, I have had the privilege of working for Hofesh Shechter Company (assisting in the production office), Aerowaves Twenty’17 (Production Assistant), Festival ELLAS CREAN, Madrid - Dance in the Museums programme (Stage Manager and Production Assistant).
As a freelance dance producer, manager and distributor, I have worked with the following artists / companies: Francesca Foscarini, Jorge Crecis, free fall (Christina Mertzani & Evangelos Pouilinas), BQ-MR Dance Company, Ian Garside, Mey-Ling Bisogno, Matxalen Bilbao, Evie Demetriou, Compañia Residente del Centro Coreográfico de La Gomera and Javier Arozena Cia.
