Mónica Mojica / Cia. Horizontal - Vertical. I am a Colombian theater actress and director. I studied at the International School of Theater Jacques Lecoq in Paris—including a postgraduate degree in education and training at "LEM" (the Department of Visual Arts and Scenography). From the beginning of my career, I focused my artistic research towards a universal language which aims to overcome the barriers of language. My professional activity takes place in the field of performing arts, and is focused on global issues relating to the human condition. My last staging, J'ai tue Emma S., was produced in residence at the Menagerie de Verre, in Paris and was performed at Le Colombier theater. I also direct teaching laboratories for artists in different institutions around the world, including the Grotowski Institute in Poland. Currently I live and work between Bogotá and Paris.
