Ixchel Mendoza Hernández (she/her) is a Mexican freelance choreographer, performer and dancer based in Berlin. She completed her choreography and dance studies at Artez Arnheim in 2007. From 2013 till 2015 she had been engaged at the MA SoDA, HZT in Berlin. Her research is based on a phenomena she calls «Visual Ghost», an consciousness of perception that continuously transforms or evolves: Living in a world, in which the materialized and visible is intertwined with the immaterial and the invisible, «Visual Ghost» explores how the invisible and immaterial can come into presence by experiencing them. Through the means of choreography she explores an awareness or consciousness that materialises in the space, interested in how these invisible phenomena come into the "present" and through what events, social arrangements or circumstances takes place.
