Perifèria IN RESiDENCE at the School Moisès Broggi

Pau Milla Rodríguez
Social educator and dancer

He was born in Barcelona In June 1982 and graduated in Social Education from the University of Barcelona in 2012, after also studying illustration at the Escola Massana in Barcelona. He has been working on the frontiers and limits of how words are used as a vehicle for communication. In this way, he undertakes an intensive exploration of the field of authentic movement, butoh, contemporary dance, psychoanalysis and Freudo-Marxist trends, social anthropology, post-colonial and de-colonial feminism, Gestalt therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, shiatsu and chiropractic massage. In 2010, he founded the subversive research laboratory Errants, which investigates movement in urban spaces in Barcelona, after having studied with dancers such as Linn Johanssen, Anna Rubirola, David Espinosa, Laura Vilar, Miquel Barcelona, Sebastian Garcia Ferro and Antonella Sampieri, among others. He created the Assemblea de Majaras group —which provides mutual support for people who have been diagnosed, or not, with disorders associated with mental health, arising from the anti-psychiatric experiences of Cooper, Basaglia and others who are critical of formal psychiatry—, and he worked on artistic-intervention projects at the Borda psychiatric hospital in the city of Buenos Aires while he studied contemporary dance at the UNA. He moved to Berlin in order to study the “Dance Intensive Programm” in the Tanzfabrik. On his return, he founded the UnKosQueAprèn dance company, together with Ona Mestre, Encarni Sanchez and Nacho Cárcaba, and took part in Tamara Cubas’ project “Multitud”, as a dancer, in the Sâlmon< Festival.

Since 2012, he has focused his work projects on the child and adolescent protection circuit, having direct contact with mistreated minors in various residential educational-action centres (CRAE) and on educational projects with young people at risk of social exclusion (La Pedrera Foundation - Nou Barris). Recently, he has been combining this with his interest in the potential of body language for research into one's own identity, in relation to others, based on “what defines me?”, “what differentiates me and makes me unique?”, understanding that this process may be traumatic and that it may sometimes require support.

In the same vein, in the last year, he has developed a dance project in a Nou Barris secondary school, from the “Aulas Connectadas” [Connected Classrooms] group, and he has collaborated on the “Five Days To Dance” project by the German company DE-LooPERS

School Moisès Broggi

After residencies by Gerard Guix and Montse Rodríguez, Jaume Pitarch, Big Bouncers and Pau Miró, this will be the fifth time that the Moisès Broggi secondary school (Camp de l’Arpa del Clot, Sant Martí) has taken part in the IN RESiDENCE programme. On this occasion, the school is participating with a group of 2nd year ESO students. 


In 2011, the Institut Moisès Broggi embarked on a profound transformation of the centre's educational programme, which is based on project-based work in which art plays a central role. Working in alliance with institutions in the surrounding area and in the city, such as the MACBA, the Sala Beckett and the Hospital de Sant Pau, among others, gives it a special dynamism.
