About me

Born and raised in Mexico City, I first moved to France to study theater, nowadays I am a PhD student at Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris. Since my project compares Sweden and France, the Department of Sociology at Stockholm University is kindly hosting me to do the fieldwork here in the capital city. The objective is to realize face to face interviews among performers, as well as to gather data on alternative cultural places and institutional theaters around Stockholm.

I study actors’ socio-professional trajectories, focusing on their market position across three moments of their career: 1. When they become professionals, 2. The present moment and 3. A future position by asking them where they would like to be in five years. Using underground and upperground as market divisions I aim to contextualize the position of physical spaces (theater or cultural places) and the various resources involved in creative processes. By doing so I would like to pinpoint the inequalities performers experience throughout their artistic trajectories within the theater world.
