My name is Vanessa Vargas. I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. I'm a contemporary dancer and performer, BA (Licenciate) in social communication, MA in communication for social development. I have worked in these areas for over 10 years. I recently moved to Astoria, NYC -I have been an American Resident for more than a decade, traveling from Venezuela to the US for studies, formation and specific projects-, and I would love to continue sharing this project. I am openly looking for the opportunity to continue developing my work in these fields and expanding my horizons in this city.
As a dancer and social researcher, with my husband Daniel Esparza (art historian-philosopher and musician) we have undertaken a project of social development through arts -Beat Cultural Lab-. We have already developed this project in Venezuela but we want to give it a try in NYC, with the support and collaboration of institutions like yours. If you want any more details on our project, you can check my website at http://vanessavargas.me/2014/07/07/beat-cultural-lab/
. I am interested in your feedback, recommendations and insights on the matter.
