Estrellx Supernova

West New York, NJ

Estrellx Supernova (they/them) is a queer AfroIndigenous cosmic energetic orchestrator, choreographer, and healer whose roots extend into Guatemala, Angola, & Portugal. Estrellx was born in New Jersey, on unceded Lenape territory.

Estrellx is interested in choreography as a process of excavation, task as meditation, psychosomatic work (working directly with grief, joy, rage, and praise), Chinese Energetics, and getting messy by conjuring contemporary rituals within quotidian and natural landscapes.

Estrellx explores the notion of club spaces as sites of generative dissonance and asks, “Are we celebrating or mourning or both? How do we prepare for the not yet seen?” Their practice and choreographic platform integrates ecology (as it relates to trauma, healing, the environment, perception, spirituality, BIQTPOC sovreignty); choreography (that uses club dancing, improvisatory systems, somatic, and ritual-based forms); and socially-engaged praxis (that bridges movement research to broader communities, fields, and discourses through performance).

Estrellx frames performance and choreography as a state of transmission and channeling reciprocity, generosity, vulnerability, and love.

Between 2019 - 2021, Estrellx was awarded a Creative Capital Award, a National Association of Latino Arts & Culture Artist Grant, an Impulstanz | danceWEB scholarship, a Princess Grace in Choreography Fellowship Award, and a San Francisco Arts Commission Individual Artist Grant.

Currently, Estrellx is diving deep into the work of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Death Doula training, and Somatic Experiencing that will become core elements of the queericulum they are developing for their long-term vision called The School of Tenderness, Embodied Kinetics, & Alchemical Arts. 

Estrellx calls in more ease, lightness, clarity, openness, and receptivity into their life and trust that things will continue to fall into place.
