Eduardo Vallejo Pinto’s work has a formal and poetic force that translates into an unmistakable style. In each of his works, there is an arcane pact in which necessity is transformed into survival and movement becomes subordinated to the needs of the soul.
Eduardo leaves behind the dominant academicism in dance to portray a divergent society. His recurring themes are and will continue to be determinant in his career, such as political and social criticism, gender roles, interpersonal relationships and their consequences or concepts attached to specific periods of history.
