Cristina Pérez Sosa
ES/ Islas Canarias
Graduating from a Tourism Degree and a background in professional dancing,
my interest for Arts Production / Management was sparked, and has today become my passion.
Working as Tour Manager & Production Assistant of MASDANZA, The international contemporary dance festival of the Canary Islands, for 13 years has equipped me with vital skills for efficient people management and logistical organisation. Through the interpersonal nature of the role, and the enthusiasm that I brought to my position, I was able to make the most of the opportunity to develop an international dance network.
Moving from Madrid to London, I was assisted the production office of Hofesh Shechter Company. This gave me an insight into how a dance company of this calibre tours internationally, and the responsibilities involved with making it happen.
From 2014 to early 2017 I worked 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.
While working at TripSpace I was also engaged as a freelance ‘producer’ for the Italian choreographer Francesca Foscarini, taking care of the promotion & communication of her artistic work.
In 2017 I was part of the renowned European dance platform Aerowaves Twenty’17 as production assistant.
And before settling in Spain I lived 5 months in Shanghai where I had the opportunity to connect with several International Dance Institutions.
Since then I have worked as a freelancer in dance production, management and distribution with the following companies: Francesca Foscarini, Jorge Crecis, free fall (Christina Mertzani & Evangelos Pouilinas) BQ-MR Dance Company, Mey-Ling Bisogno, Matxalen Bilbao, Evie Demetriou, Compañia residente del Centro Coreográfico de La Gomera.
