Personal profile


Julio Escudero was born in Rio Cuarto, Argentina. After studying Chemistry for two years, he moved to Buenos Aires to explore the Performing Arts through Dance. His dance education at the Taller de Danza del Teatro San Martin and ballet courses at Colon Theatre were the starting point of a career as a performer and choreographer that led him to work for more than 20 years in Argentina, France, Spain, USA, Germany and Austria, performing as a soloist and main dancer in many productions.

His interest in movement research and design led him to create his own works and collaborations with dance companies as a dancer, choreographer, costume and stage designer.

During his studies at the Bachelor's and master's programmes in Fashion and Technology at the Kunstuniversität Linz in Austria, Julio Escudero explored the relationship between movement, body, space, and body objects from an artistic point of view. Traces of movement, the body that defies its limits, the shape of his memories... all inspire him to his aesthetical and fragile pieces that bring together movement and design. He was a researcher in the Peek project "Fashion and Robotics" (funded by FWF), where he explored the artistic possibilities between human and robotic motion for the creation of body objects.
