Gabriela Sanchez Troncoso

I am professional Chilean dancer and just finished Sistema Rio Abierto, Gestalt therapy training focused on the use of movement as healing. It gave me a new vison of what I am doing relating with dance, movement and the people and I lead groups with this system in Inverness and then at Findhorn Foundation for the youth experience week and also at Newbold House for adults with the workshop “Expressive movement for all”, currently I am doing workshops in Forres, Findhorn, Edinburgh and Spain.
I describe myself as an explorer and composer of movement and space and work mainly with site-specific movement, focus on the use of environment and what happens to me in it.
