Conveying her fascinations and frustrations, Luisa Fernanda Alfonso embodies and hijacks the archetypes of the character dancer and the mariachi, both hyper-dramatic, virtuosic and sexualized. Masterpiece explores their excesses and confronts them with their traditional representations, while freeing dance from its heritage and traditions.


Luisa Fernanda Alfonso is a Colombian dancer living in Germany. She studied modern dance at the Institut Limón in New York, graduated in dance at the Folkwang University in Essen and obtained a master's degree in solo/dance/authoring at the HZT in Berlin. Luisa approaches dance and performance with bitterness, absurdity and humor, as a carefully orchestrated artificial theatrical apparatus. Her piece Masterpiece has been presented at Théâtre Sévelin 36 in Lausanne (Festival Les Urbaines), PACT Zollverein in Essen (Festival TanzNRW), Kunstverein in Munich (PARK series) and Festival thecarrierbag in Copenhagen. As an independent artist, Luisa has collaborated with Leila Hekmat, caner teker, Roman Pfeifer, Sanna Helena Berger, Estefanía Álvarez Ramirez, Xenia Koghilaki, Luísa Saraiva, Deva Schubert, Ben J. Riepe, Juan Felipe Amaya, Emilie Gregersen, Armin Hokmi and Kim Dall'armi.

Peter Rubel studied instrumental and electronic composition at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen with Günter Steinke, Dirk Reith and Michael Edwards, and organ with Roland Stangier. During this period, he created compositions for various ensembles, tape music and pieces for dance and theater productions. In addition to his work as a composer, Peter Rubel is a member of various ensembles and groups such as Müde, GLIS GLIS, International Music, Laava and The Düsseldorf Düsterboys. His work focuses on long durations, harmonics, rhythms, amplification, polyrhythms and instrumental expansion through electronics.
