Benjamin Lundberg Torres Sanchez
Covenant House, Manhattan
Benjamin Lundberg is a Colombian performance artist, theater-maker, and educator. His performances create collaborative collisions between a public and a performer, focusing on inviting immersion and participation by creating spaces that script the way audiences engage.
His recent work engages his body and archives as unmoored travelers: passing through sites of the national, medical, theological, and familial — leaving remnants in their wake.
Lundberg’s work has appeared in spaces including the PHI Centre (Montreal), SP Escola de Teatro (Sao Paulo), Zona 30 (Lima), El Bunker (La Paz), The Mills Gallery (Boston), Villa Victoria Center for the Arts (Boston), Providence International Arts Festival, AS220 (Providence), AURORA (Providence), Pigeon Hole Gallery (Providence), the Queens Museum, the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival, Panoply Performance Laboratory (Brooklyn), Silent Barn (Brooklyn), Fitness Center for Arts and Tactics (Brooklyn), Bowery Poetry Club (Manhattan), Teatro Circulo (Manhattan), La MaMa E.T.C. (Manhattan), and the Morgan Library & Museum (Manhattan).
He is a resident artist AS220 in Providence, a founding member of the EmergeLAB @ BAX, and is a member of the 2012 EMERGENYC cohort at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance & Politics.
