The Theoros Project is a research frame situated at the intersection between philosophy and art, dilettantism and professionalism, and it is dedicated to investigate on the notions of body and event and to create contexts for learning and practicing theory. In this light, the artistic practice becomes a way of practicing philosophy. The workshops are facilitated frames for a temporary collective body to engage in the process of dancing and choreographing a series of practical problems using the methodology of cyclic interval oscillation, a practice that seeks to keep open the relation to alterity.
Diego Agulló was born in Madrid in 1980 and he presses orange juice every morning.
He practices dilettantism across art and philosophy investigating the affinity between the concepts of Body and Event.
Between 1998 and 2004, he studied philosophy focusing his research on the concepts of play, boredom and refrain. During that time he practiced painting, video and music and since 2003 he is part of the collective En Busca del Pasto, a project for music improvisation.
In 2005 he decided to quit his Masters studies and, therefore, his academic trajectory and he moved to Berlin where he started working as a freelance video artist and musician. Two years later he had a fortuitous and inevitable encounter with choreography that lasts until today having developed in collaboration an interdisciplinary body of work that passes through different forms such as performance, video art, participatory events, lectures, texts, installations and workshops.
Since 2007, Diego has been organizing participatory events such as The Waiting Room, 3AM or CUE, a long term project based on the paradoxical question of how to organize the unexpected?
Diego´s frame of research is called Theoros , and it is dedicated to create contexts for learning and investigating the role of the body in the practice of theory. It deals with the intersection between pedagogy and art, dilettantism and professionalism. In this light, the artistic practice becomes a way of practicing philosophy. The workshops are facilitated frames for a temporary collective body to engage in the process of dancing and choreographing a series of practical problems using the methodology of cyclic interval oscillation, a practice that seeks to keep open the relation to alterity. He teaches at Smash intensive Berlin at AFFECT, Agora Collective at HZT and Universität der Künste Berlin.
Diego´s current projects include the TV Program PINPOINT in collaboration with Agata Siniarska and the independent publishing house CIRCADIAN in collaboration with Dmitry Paranyushkin.
