Bio

Carolina Martínez-López is a tenured professor of the degrees in Performing Arts and Audiovisual and Multimedia Communication at the University of Girona (ERAM), and programmer of the Valladolid International Film Festival (SEMINCI). PhD in Fine Arts from the University of Castilla-La Mancha, her lines of research revolve around an expanded vision of cinema, choreography, scene and the uses of the body, from an experimental and documentary perspective. She is the editor and translator of "El Universo Dereniano. Textos fundamentales de la cineasta Maya Deren" (2015 and 2020), and she is one of the authors in the three volumes of the "Historia de la Danza Contemporánea en España" (2019-2021), coordinated by the Academia de las Artes Escénicas, of which she is a member. She is the author of the experimental poetry books "escribir y respirar" (2020) and "el punto ciego del paisaje" (2021), published by Salvoconducto books, a project of which she is co-founder.

Project

"El sol del invierno" is a poetic monologue in four acts set in the ruins of capitalism, which starts from Joseph Campbell's “The Hero's Journey”, and contains echoes of the playwright Heiner Müller and the poetess Emily Dickinson. It is a journey into the abyss of the pain of memory, flesh and word, from which, unexpectedly, sparkles appear that point to possible redemptions. The writing is overflowing and, after passing through my body, it questions itself in an almost cinematographic game of assembly and disassembly. This phase of deconstruction and reconstruction is what I will work on in Faberllull.
