Javi Cruz’s work is developed through collaborative projects, either in his individual practice or as part of collective structures such as Elgatoconmoscas or PLAYdramaturgia, as well as collaborations with professionals in the performing arts, usually as a performer.
In his practice we find collaborations with a chemist, a biologist, choreographers and construction worker among other disciplines that shape a discourse based on performativity and the design of situations, the exploration of language and its material dimension, generating ways of telling contemporaneity.
In 2019 he started, together with Jacobo Cayetano (Zuloark), Bosque Real, a platform to safeguard forgotten heritage and recount them from multiple rescue perspectives. As well, together with Fernando Gandasegui runs the Bar Yola, where a cross between living arts and pedagogies is hosted in scenic contexts.
His work has been part of exhibitions in important institutions such as the CA2M like his solo show Trémula (2021), the Nocturnal Picnic Session (Bosque Real + Cuqui Jerez, 2021) and the collective show Querer parecer noche (2018-2019), as well as in La Casa Encendida, with Flor de Mayo (2021) with David Horvitz. He has also been part of exhibitions in the Sala de Arte Joven of the Madrid Community and in the Patio Herreriano Museum in Valladolid, among other art centers, festivals and theaters on a national and international scale.
