Florencia Guerberof
Founder of Asian Performing Arts UK

Florencia Guerberof was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1980.
With a formation in visual arts, art theory and dance she reflects her aesthetic concerns on stage creating cross disciplinary performances.

Her interest in existentialism led her to investigate Butoh dance. She is a recipient of the Scottish Arts Council Grant which enabled her to carry out an extensive research on Butoh in Tokyo under the mentoring of Yoshito Ohno among other Butoh masters.

She has presented her performances in London at Siobhan Davies,
The Blue Elephant Theatre, Café Oto and Shunt as well as at The Nightingale Theatre in Brighton. Currently, she is running Butoh Research Project in leading venues such as RADA (The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) and SOAS University (The School of Oriental and African Studies) .

Florencia has toured Paris performing for “Danse Elargie” dance festival 2012 at Théâtre de la Ville and Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris. She has also showcased her work in Berlin at HKW, Haus der Kulturen der Welt in 2013.

She has recently founded Asian Performing Arts UK Ltd in London with the support of Sasakawa Foundation and the Japan Society.
She currently lives and works in London.
