MYSELF AS ONE
I am Eva García, along with many other names, those of now, those of before, and those from far earlier when I did not imagine who I would be today.
Diversifying myself, my vision above all, and on occasions adopting different professional roles, makes it harder for me to communicate what moves me, what I do and how I do it. comuArt tries to compile and explain all these with more clarity.
My journey is marked by a very early vocation in acting and singing, studies in a school of Dramatic Art in a countryside University, and the feeling of not finding my place neither emotionally nor professionally. I have always felt in the margins of what has been my context, so perhaps it is not a coincidence that I finally dedicated my work to what I currently do… .
Following my instincts, I moved to Paris, and it was there that I discovered Augusto Boal. This then prompted my move to the next adventure in CTO-Rio, thanks to a
surprising benefactor. Brazil gave me the confidence to value and believe in theater as a vehicle to deconstruct imaginary worlds.
A journey of trial, error and evidence enabled me to challenge myself to realise my own limits and how I relate to others and generally with the society (continuously changing from the minute to the bigger things). That journey took me to co-create transFORMAS in Barcelona and in this way, I
finally felt at home. This was the first time I felt part of a community – physically, emotionally and generally regarding all I was going through in my life. It made me stronger, it made me fight, it made me understand my constant doubts in life.
The way that I look at the world is peripheral, and so are my interests. Then, I had the opportunity to join the team of the Jornadas de Inclusión (Conference of Inclusion) as the first coordinator of content and production. This helped me find connections and shared needs which were unknown to me until then. My contribution was to add practical experience and value to projects, and institutions which I have joined since then.
Three years ago, I felt, we felt that the adventure together in transFORMAS was over. Once again, I found
myself by myself, but more comfortable. It is no longer a contradiction to me to join projects with very diverse objectives and situations, but that they all have the aim of starting artistic collaborative projects, the creation of bonds and widening social horizons..
Once again, I found myself living in the margins. I am constantly facing a blank page, with new beginnings, passionate and excited by challenges, possibilities and playing with trials and demands.
