Profunda locura, herida de amor

Aïda Colmenero Dïaz

Ella Poema is a project co-created with 40 female creators from 15 countries under the artistic direction of Aïda Colmenero Dïaz. This revolutionary project, with its gender and postcolonial perspective, has been positioning young creators as artistic references on the international scene since 2013. To date, Ella Poema has produced 20 dance short films, 6 contemporary dance pieces, and photographic series of great beauty and visual power, inspired by poems written by poets such as Stella Díaz Varín, Rosario Castellanos, Ada Salas, Iosune de Goñi, and Fina García Marruz. The creators of Ella Poema, daughters of the revolution and the independence of a continent, are unique and pioneering artists who, from their particular geographical, cultural, and personal contexts, engage in individual and intimate creative processes to transform a literary score into body and audiovisual language, transgressing hegemonic artistic narratives to convey universal messages through a unique artistic manifestation. To date, Ella Poema's short films, photographic exhibitions, and stage works have been showcased in over 30 countries across Europe, Latin America, and Africa.
