Artist statement

Alice Rodriguez is an educator and collaborator for Girls Rock Columbia. She has always seen teaching as her calling and an art form of its own, and her hope is to create a community of learners and teachers that focus on self-expression as a means to gain knowledge and create change.
 
She is originally from Puerto Rico, and her art takes the form of painting, mixed media, music, and dance. Her dance practice is very shamanic in nature and focuses on a lot of unknowns. In Warrior Fairy, Rodriguez took on the role of a "pregonera" as she shared her story through a public art performance using music, dancing, and queer art. 
 
 
 
 

 
 

“I want to use my dancing and movement to empower the audience to act.”
