Ainhoa Hernández Escudero. Madrid-born choreographer based in Amsterdam, where she will complete the DAS Theatre MA programe in 2022. Her work traverses counter-hegemonic practices, traditionally carried out by women - witchcraft, spiritism, magic or herbology - under the spell of pop aesthetics and mainstream culture inherent to our current reality.

She is currently developing the first chapter of the choreographic saga Blooming: The Torch, The Key and The Snake. She is a founder member of the choreographic collective Twins Experiment; she is part of the curatorial project Saliva, of Bastante Algo, Otros Muebles, a project that combines design and choreography, and of DUST a a fugitive institute based in Amsterdam.
