Viveca Vázquez is a choreographer, dancer, and a professor of humanities and modern dance at the University of Puerto Rico. She co-founded Pisotón, the first experimental dance group of Puerto Rico and, shortly after, Taller de Otra Cosa, of which she became the first director. Through the company she presented her choreographic work and produced events such as Rompeforma (co-produced and co-directed with Merián Soto), a key festival in the development of the experimental dance scene in Puerto Rico. Since 1984 she has produced and performed experimental dance events in the United States, Mexico, Venezuela and Argentina, among a great number of other places. As a teacher she has developed a pedagogical model based on body conscience and improvisation.
