Cristina Maldonado/Badlygifted is a body researcher, choreographer, pedagogue and conceptual artist. Her work is based on BODY, this concept nurtures diverse creative approaches: body in action, as a material, as an object, as a container of identity, emotions, stories and testimonies; all these used as a unifying symbol of human kind. Maldonado uses visual arts, performance, experimental theater, dance, interviews, testimonies, and conversation with audience aiming for a collective experience of introspection that usually starts on specific personal issues.

Since 2000 she has been directing and creating experimental performance productions, and usually works in collaboration with artists from different disciplines and nationalities. She has performed in Eastern Europe, New York and Montreal,; and have been supported by the main cultural institutions in México such as Foreign Affairs Secretariat, National Foundation for Culture and Arts, National Institute of Fine Arts.
