Description: Cuerpo al rito proposes a path of transfiguration through the rawest and most living arts that Caballero found: those of the body itself. The workshop will focus on the methodology that emerged after 17 years of creative processes and 11 years of working with group laboratories. It is aimed at artists, therapists, educators, group facilitators and those who do not identify with any label and who want to embark on their path in life and professionally. A special emphasis will be placed on the creative processes of works, projects and realities.



  • It prepares you physically, emotionally, spiritually, and professionally for a mindful artistic practice.
  • It further explores musical, corporal, spatial and group dynamics for the personal and collective exploration of new perceptive and creative horizons.
  • It offers a framework of action and communication whose codes are based on a reality that goes beyond everyday and consensus reality.
  • It facilitates access to channels of perception and expression and to states of consciousness that encourage trance, purging, and creation.
  • It rereads and decodifies the body, time, space, roles, formats...
  • It proposes the BodyVoice Process practice, created by Patricia Caballero, and uses others inspired by Grotowsky, CTR, Body Weather, Roy Hart, Process work, Deep ecology, and Dragon Dreaming.
  • It reviews conventions and traditions, sowing new structures for the acceptance and expansion of art through immersion in rituality.

 Recommendation: wear comfortable clothing.



Patricia Caballero has been linked to dance for 33 years and professionally for 17 years. A journey of deep study, creation, teaching and accompaniment. Her many transdisciplinary projects are promoted by national and international theatres, festivals, and creative spaces.


Since 2006, she has investigated different languages, exploring stage documentaries through a trilogy: Aquí Gloria y después paz, Lo raro es que estemos vivos and Barrunto. She closely collaborated with La Porta (Barcelona), a platform that supported all of her projects until it disbanded. For 4 years, she has been immersed in Epifanías, a research project that shakes the boundaries between popular festivals, sacred rites, and stage events, channelling her artistic language towards a new paradigm. It involved the participation of over 350 people and was supported by different institutions and communities.


She worked for several years alongside Israel Galván on stage direction and the integral accompaniment of his work. She co-created with other artists such as Mónica Valenciano and Niño de Elche. In her projects she is constantly accompanying creators such as Luz Arcas (La Pharmaco), Alberto Cortés, Rocío Guzman, Rosa Romero, among many others. She recently began her movie career with the film On the Go, currently on a global tour around prestigious art house film festivals.


A graduate in Choreography from the Theatre Institute of Barcelona, she has co-founded art collectives and communities such as Arriero, Zirtam, La Colmena... consolidating her BodyVoice Process practice, on which she offers two-year training programmes, after 11 years of continuous laboratory work and investigation. She is also the curator of programmes such as Ciutat Flamenc 2015 at the Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona; of the Art and Ecology Gatherings in rural settings in Cadiz; the co-organiser and advisor of the El Molino de Guadalmesí creative space (Tarifa-Cádiz); and board member and coordinator of the art residencies of La Aceitera (Rocío Molina creative centre in Seville).
