Yesenia Fuentes


Yesenia Fuentes is a choreographer, dancer, and performing artist. Always underscoring the importance of the process of research and creation, Yesenia seeks to question the absurdity and hollowness of certain dynamics of the contemporary world while reflecting more broadly on existence and the human condition. Her works, in situ and immersive, explore the intimate interaction between the body and its environment. She questions temporality through movements, bridging the gap between introspection and the outside world..

Not only her rigorous preparation but the different experiences and encounters she has had have defined Yesenia’s forms and set up a path of discovery through dance. Born in Bogotá, she moved to Montreal in 2001, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts at Concordia University. Yesenia has shared her expressive performances across the globe. Likewise, the vibrant collaborative projects of dance, photography, music, and video that she has participated in have reached diverse places and publics.
As a way of learning and sharing with others, Yesenia organizes and offers Butoh workshops. Since 2016 Yesenia founded P'andanza, an alternative platform in Montréal dedicated to the creation, production and dissemination of the performing arts.
