Born in 1987 in Spain, Rocio Berenguer is interested in the major issues and mutations of our contemporary world - such as the evolution of individual freedom in our society, the place of technology in our daily lives, and ecological issues. Her creations are prospective fictions that explore the possibility of "another tomorrow".
For each creation, Rocio begins a work of investigation and dialogue with scientists which generates a text that she then combines with other materials, preferring to hybridize different media - text, dance, videos, digital art - rather than restricting herself to a single practice. The use of new technologies is not a fascination but a desire to integrate them into poetic writing while questioning the way these technologies, omnipresent in our lives, modify our interpersonal relationships.
She has been in residency at the Centre des arts d'Enghien-les-Bains, scène conventionnée pour les écritures numériques and at the Hexagone, scène nationale de Meylan or Théâtre Nouvelle Génération, Centre Dramatique National de Lyon directed by Joris Mathieu, until 2021. For the 2021/2022 season, the Théâtre de la Ville - Espace Cardin has invited her to experiment with a new form: the Laboratoire de Mythologies contemporaines where scientists and artists come together to formulate a new common mythology
