Nomadic Survival Disorder or a Game of Boundaries is the result of an artistic collaboration among a group of artists with diverse backgrounds and training to develop an experimental multidisciplinary work that integrates movement, text, sound, images, and technology. From a playful perspective the piece reflects on how people define parameters and limits, and tests social and personal normative systems that contribute to keep information, behaviors, thoughts and feelings under certain acceptable level of control. The work presents a multicultural perspective of borderland crossing in which migrants are understood as individuals that (culturally speaking) organically transgress frontiers and stretch boundaries, offering new possibilities to bridge and navigate diverse and contrasting realities.

Zen-borg is an audio-visual, biofeedback piece, that creates a musical experience directly influenced by the performer's vital signs. By wearing brainwaves and heartbeat detectors, the data coming from these devices is sent to different parameters inside the music system. This creates a cyclical interaction between the performer, the sound, and the environment which then re-influences the performer and affects the outcome once again.
