The Theoros Project deals with the intersection between pedagogy and art, dilettantism and professionalism, creating contexts for learning and practicing theory across art and philosophy. 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.

Between 1998 and 2004, he studied philosophy at the University Autónoma de Madrid 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 choreography, video art, participatory events, lectures, texts, installations and workshops.

Since 2007, Diego has been organizing participatory events such as CUE, a long term project based on the paradoxical question of how to organize the unexpected? CUE has been occurred in approximately 100 editions in different cities across Europe.

Diego´s current research is the Theoros Project, an attempt to practice theory from the body investigating the intimate affinity between the concepts of Body and Event. It deals with the intersection between pedagogy and art, dilettantism and professionalism, creating contexts for learning and practicing theory across art and philosophy. 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 regularly at Smash intensive Berlin and at AFFECT, Agora Collective.

Currently, Diego is working on an essay on dilettantism called The Mischievous Mission in order to problematize the notion of professionalism in arts. The first chapter of this text has been recently released as a limited edition hand book called: Dangerous Dances.

It is now or never. Day by day.
