Irene Campos

Irene Campos is from Costa Rica, she began her dance studies in classical ballet. At the age of 16, she joined JF Ballet Contemporáneo under the direction of professor Jorge Feliz Morejón. It was there Irene was introduced to contemporary dance and continued her apprenticeship with teachers such as Rogelio López, Estefania Dondi (SEAD) and María Solera, the three Latin American choreographers and performers. She has been participating in dance festivals inside and outside Costa Rica such as the Dance National Festivals (C.R.) and Tercer Festival Escénico Internacional/Proyecto Teatral Futuro (HD). In 2016 she joined the contemporary dance company Imagodanza, together with the choreographer Luis Piedra and in 2017 she graduated from the training program in contemporary dance at the University of Costa Rica entitled Danza Abierta. After working as a choreographer in Costa Rica Irene was inspired to work on her piece Ausente along with her Isaac Alemán and Maria Luisa Meszaros, to convey her admiration for the delicacy of classical ballet fused with contemporary dance.

Irene is inspired by companies such as Nederlands Dans Theater and Australian Dance Theater as well as admiration for choreographers like Wayne Macgregor, Paul Lightfoot, and Jiri Kylia, among others.
