CAREER

Silvia Lezcano was born in 1975 in Chaco, Argentina. She started her studies of classic dance at the age of 5 and immediately falling in love with this form of art, she knew she wanted to become a ballerina. At the age of 9, she performed in her first leading role and this additionally built her trust in destiny. When she was 18 years old, she left her hometown to study at the IUNA –Instituto Universitario Nacional Arte – in Buenos Aires, she also studied with several dance and physical theatre teachers.

Launching her career as a contemporary dancer meant she travelled extensively, spending time in Brazil, Costa Rica and Mexico, immersing herself in new styles of dance, and it was this search that originally brought her to Spain in 2002. It was then that she decided to base herself in Barcelona and continue her artistic development on the Catalan stage.

Her performances are characterised by the use of a poetic physical language and a philosophy stripped of any convention that underpins her entire approach to choreography. She interweaves the most up-to-date contemporary dance techniques (inspired by both the European and American schools) with more traditional folk styles such as tango and Asian dance, as well as elements of physical theatre. This results in a highly distinctive personal style that imbues all her choreographies with their characteristic sense of purposeful movement.

She has also collaborated with many different Catalan dance companies: Decapapeus, Domus del Karo, and Tango Magnetic, among others. In 2005 she created "LA BESTIAL", her own company.

Dance has taken her to many different countries: Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Costa Rica, Portugal, France and Spain when she has performed in the Grec Theatre, Liceu Theatre, Museo Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Catalan National Theatre, the Barcelona Auditorium, the Mercat de les Flors Theatre, the Theatre of Madrid, Zaragoza’s Main Theatre, the Canovelles Auditorium, the Goya Theatre, the Contemporary Festival (“Actual”), the Universal Forum of Cultures, the San Cugat Auditorium Theatre, Auditori de Les Corts, “La Sala” (the City Theatre of Rubí), the Cornellá Auditorium, La Pedrera, Casa Batlló, the Crypt of the Sagrada Familia, the Grec Festival, the Tot Dansa Festival, the Barcelona City Festival of La Mercé, and the International Festivals of Contemporary Dance at Sala el Triángulo.

In conjunction she has a prolific teaching career, giving classes in many different centers cívics and dance schools all across Catalonia.

Silvia dedicates her professional life to her intense activity as ballerina and choreographer but also is strongly committed to teaching.
