Glòria Ros, dancer and creator, centres her artistic practice around improvisation as a method of creating sound and movement pieces in the present moment. She investigates the nature of this practice, understanding it as a specific and autonomous stage event, and at the same time as a source of common knowledge. Meanwhile, she is interested in exploring forms of research documentation and archiving, through the written word and the image.
She holds a degree from the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, specialising in Classical Dance, and continued her studies at the Cannes Jeune Ballet (France). She joined Introdans Ensemble voor de Jeugd (The Netherlands), performing internationally with them in pieces by Jiří Kylián, William Forsythe, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Mats Ek, Inbal Pinto, etc. As a freelancer, she has worked with Arno Schuitemaker, Arthur Rosenfeld and Núria Guiu, among others.
She regularly collaborates with saxophonist Albert Cirera and singer Celeste Alias in real-time compositions, and has also co-created with composer and pianist Carles Viarnès.
Currently, she is a member of the Liz Roche Company (Ireland); is developing her own collective research project on the improvisation of movement, sound and image; and she does choreographic and movement advising.
She was awarded the 1st prize at Shortcuts - Experimental Dance Film Festival (Austria) and is a guest lecturer at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance (University of Limerick, Ireland).
