#aboutmeJulio Escudero was born in Rio Cuarto, Argentina. After studying Chemistry for 2 years, he decided to move to Buenos Aires to explore the Performing Arts through Dance. His dance education at the Taller de Danza del Teatro San Martin (where he was awarded as best graduate) and ballet courses at Colon Theatre were the starting point of a career as a performer and choreographer that lead him to work for more than 20 years in Argentina, France, Spain, USA, Germany and Austria, performing as a soloist and main dancer in many productions. His interest in movement research and design lead him to create his own works and also collaborations with dance companies as dancer, choreographer and costume designer. After graduating with distinction in the Bachelor program of Fashion and Technology, he finished his master studies in Fashion Design and Technology at the Kunstuniversität Linz where he explored the relationship between movement, body and space from an artistic point of view. Airflows, the body that defies its own limits, the shape of his memories… all this inspires him to his aesthetical and fragile pieces, that brings together movement and design.
Since 2020 he is researcher in the research project "Fashion and Robotics".
