Ayelen Parolin was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina but lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Her performances are like contemporary rituals that well up the true power of the body. Parolin has been asked by ICK to create one of the seven pieces for 7EVEN.
Parolin studied at the National School of Dance and the San Martin Theatre in Buenos Aires. In Europe she followed the e.x.e.r.c.e formation in Montpellier. As a performer she worked for a wide range of choreographers.
Since 2004, Ayelen Parolin develops her personal work. Each of her creations centers around a recurring motif, from which the choreography is built up. In her solo 25.06.76 she explores her autobiography. With Troupeau/Rebaño she confronts the animal that lies dormant in each of us, with SMS and Love she questions femininity and its development within a group. Other work that focuses on this topic includes Exotic World and La Esclava.
