After working for 24 years with Delfos Contemporary Dance company and co-founding and co-directing the EPDM Conservatory program in Mazatlan for 20 years, Omar Carrum stepped apart to deepen into his own Creative and pedagogical Quest.
He makes international residencies in collaboration with other artists to research, create, perform and teach around the world through his 3 main projects. WORLDrobed, ESCorporart & Continuum.
WORLDROBED is a project that promotes the creation and connection of networks for interdisciplinary collaboration through residencies and 3 axes of action: SOCIAL - EDUCATIONAL - ARTISTIC.
Since 2017 Omar Carrum has donde WDB residencies in Colombia, Brazil, Panamá, Czech Republic, Japan, EUA and Mexico. He has worked with different artists teaching, researching, creating and performing. In May 2018 started a collaboration with Luc Delannoy for a deep integration with the social/philosophical proposal of NEUROARTES to illustrate the quantum relations between the human brain, the nervous systems, the body, the artistic expressions and the worlds that consciousness structures and constructs.
ESCorporart is the meeting of Omar Carrum (Mexico) and Vladimir Rodríguez (Colombia), who develop a series of artistic collaborations that diversified in the field of research, creation and training from Contemporary Dance towards Theater. Starting with the piece ESCrito Absurdo, (work for two performers premiered in Mexico City in 2010 with more than 50 performances in Latin America) Omar and Vladimir turned this work into a permanent laboratory that gave way to innumerable collaborations and results that materialized in different places, both in their countries of origin and outside them.
Among the most relevant results of this residencies was the development of the concept and practice of the improvisation method called ESCritura del movimiento improvisado (Improvised Movement ESCript).
The work traZ -humante was the result of a residency with the company Camaleão in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The creative process was a research trough out the dramaturgy and interaction with objects.
The last project La Ruta, was premiered in Bogota at the International Festival Danza en la Ciudad, and at the CAMiN Festival in SLP, Mexico.
Developed by Omar Carrum after 26 years of pedagogical experience and research, CONTINUUM is a training system based on continuous mechanics and kinematic principles, it aims for the continuity of the kinetic chains of movement, its path, and a very specific and uncommon way to use momentum, impulse, space, motion script and physical principles.
The system studies the continuity of movement trajectories and a sustained muscular and skeletal consciousness in order to learn how we can transfer, gather and spread our weight anywhere in our body, how the mechanics of each muscle and bone work, and how all our body parts can cooperate to move more efficiently, safely and smoothly.
