Coral grew up in Mexico City where she started her formal training in dance. In 2012 she did an intensive program at the Limon Institute in New York City before coming to London where she graduated from Trinity Laban with a First Class BA.<

During her time at Trinity Laban, she performed works by Zoi Dimitriou, Eleven Farrer House and Yvonne Rainer (transmitted by Sara Wookey).

In 2016 she participated in the community project led by Hagit Yakira ‘On Falling and Recovering’.  She will be performing next autumn at Sadler’s Wells in Wilhelmina Ojanen’s work as part of the Young Associates mixed bill.

Her interest in visual arts and performance art is reflected in her work both as a performer and choreographer. When making work, she believes in the importance of process, research and experimentation.

In using her body as vibrant matter, she is aware that even if she wants to articulate something specific, her body is never solely her own; it is as well part of a system of representations of bodies.

Coral finds pleasure in researching and writing about dance and performance art. She has published two articles in the cultural online section of Nexos, Mexico City; both researches on the choreographic work of Yvonne Rainer and Jérôme Bel respectively.

She was recently part of the Resolution Review team at The Place, London. She is currently doing an MA at LCDS focusing on choreography and performance. Her most recent written work was entitled: The absent but not invisible woman: An embodied journey through explicit feminist performance.
