I think this could be the third time that i answer this question....
I DONT KNOW why i study this carrer...
I have a funny relationship with it: as more i learn about the theorie of arts more i am in desagree with a lot of things. But there still are some thinkers which have original ways of refering of arts. I prefer the area of "gestion cultural". I think it gives you more possibilities to contribute to society. A person who works in culture has the objective of opening spaces to art and culture in the society. And to teach people how important is the culture in the developpement of self-identity. Here in Chile there's a lot of work to do (you can look at the photo). But that doesn't mean that i'll find a job easily. Another thing that i like is "art in public's spaces". I enjoy making "interventions" in the street. And finally i had decide to study dance

A few years ago i went with my mother to Andacollo. It's an altiplanic little town lost into the northern mountains of the region of Coquimbo. I went there because this little town is the santuary of "La Virgen de Andacollo", wich is one of the most important madonnas in Chile. She represents the culture's mixture between the catholic religion of the colonialism and popular northern myths. Two times a year there's in Andacollo two religious partys, the big one and the small one. The "Carnaval de Andacollo" is the bigger religious party in Chile after El carnaval de La Tirana. So you can imagine all this cultural richness concentrated in this little place that is deserted the most of the time. When the party time arrives all that peace is transformed into a crazy place full of people wearing funny suits and dancing repetitives dances...
