lives and works in Brussels.
Jaime Llopis studied drama at ESAD (Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático de Valencia) and dance and choreography at EDDC (European Dance Development Center) in Arnhem. He subsequently graduated from a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) in Brussels in 2013. Jaime is currently studying philosophy.
Based in Brussels since 2003, he has been working as a dancer and performer for different independent choreographers Hisako Horikawa, Andros Zins-Browne a.o., as well as developing his own choreographic work: Make me yours tonight I’m awake (2009), Aliciacarmen (2015) and Samantha (2019).
In his work, he tries to implement a series of mechanisms of de-identification. De-identifying the object of representation. De-identifying the subject as a performer. De-identifying the subject as a spectator. De-identifying the time and the space of representation. Undoing the tacit logic of identity that entangles all these elements, in an attempt to suspend expectations.
