El Cuco Projekt experiments with articulating Choreography and Visual Arts in a creative autonomous combination. With animal masks, our human bodies in movement generate dissimilar characters. They become sculptures, paintings and cartoons at the same time: they are simultanously animal, human AND thing.
El Cuco Projekt was founded in 2015 by Sonia Franken (Dance) and Gonzalo Barahona (Visual Art). Since 2017 Carla Jordao (Dance), Valerij Lisac (Music/Video), Lena Thelen (costumes) and Jacqueline Gräf (Production) joined the group.
Gonzalo Barahona completed his studies in Santiago de Chile (Diploma Visual Art) in Hamburg ( M.A. Film, Animation) and is currently working on his PHD project in Visual Arts at the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst, Hamburg. He works on paintings, sculptures, stage design and in 2014 started to perform on stage. http://www.gonzalobarahona.wordpress.com
