Biography

Since its foundation in 1997, the Creation Area of El Colegio del Cuerpo (eCdC), whose Direction is in charge of Álvaro Restrepo and Marie France Delieuvin, contributes to the artistic and cultural development of  Cartagena de Indias, Colombia and the world, through its processes of creation, production and the consolidation of a repertoire of Contemporary Dance. The professional and the pedagogical dimensions are mutually strengthened, permitting the egresses from the programs of the Formation Area, to become professional dancers of the Compañía del Cuerpo de Indias (professional company of eCdC), as well as choreographers and pedagogues.
