Alejandra (Tobar Alatriz) ::
Based out of the Twin Cities, MN, Alejandra (Tobar Alatriz) enjoys working regionally, nationally, and internationally. Alejandra has been performing and creating work for the last twenty+ years in the realms of theater, dance, poetry and spoken word, puppetry and performance art.
Her most recent, local creative work has included works at the History Theater, Park Square Theater, Monkeybear Harmolodic Workshop, and Pangea World Theater. She has performed in venues all over the United States in community spaces, classrooms, and stages.
She began as a child performing on television with Instituto Profesional de Artes Escénicas Karen Connolly in Santiago, Chile in the 80’s. She grew up in the theater during the aftershock of a dictatorship that was overthrown by an arts-infused, nonviolent revolution. As a teenager, she danced with Allegro Ballet in Houston, Texas and with Regional Dance America nationally and internationally. She expanded into choreographing musicals for high schools and with the University of Texas’ Student Exhibit of Experimental Dance in Austin, TX until 2002. Her professional life, centered in the Twin Cities, MN has encompassed working as an artist, popular education trainer and arts organizer within the non-profit, educational and government systems. She loves creating and facilitating intuitive, embodied processes for groups and individuals.
Please do contact with any opportunities or questions. Workshops, residencies, and presentations on a wide range of topics are also available.
Alejandra runs a healing justice practice business, a virtual multi-disciplinary healing arts lab at United Bodyworkers and Artists (now in alliance with Body of the Earth Massage) with colleagues with Sun Yung Shin and Sara Wernick Schonwald in Dakota territory, Minnesota, USA.
