Christopher Unpezverde Núñez

Christopher "Unpezverde" Núñez is a Costa Rican born, Brooklyn based queer independent choreographer, performer, curator, activist and dance educator. Núñez holds a BFA in Dance from The National University of Costa Rica.

He creates performative playgrounds using elements of Latin American folk art, queer activism, technology and anthropomorphism of objects associated with personal memory. His choreography reflects the violence against sexual diversity and issues of immigration. Núñez turns the adversities of his personal experiences into a powerful choreographic work that seek to generate awareness for the voices that continues to live in silence.

Some of the choreographers he has collaborated with are Christophe Haleb, Mark Sieczkarek, Darryl Thomas, Elia Arce, Butch Merigoni, among others.

Núñez is a Battery Dance Space Grant Recipient (NYC) in 2018, a Moving Borders Scholarship recipient (México) in 2014 and was awarded Best Performer by the National Theater of Costa Rica in 2012.

Most recently, his work has been presented in NYC at Movement Research at the Judson Church, The Leslie Lohman Museum for Gay and Lesbian Art, InSitu Dance Festival, Performance Mix Festival, LaGuardia Performing Arts Center, Queerly Contemporary Festival, Green Space, Panoply Performance Laboratory and internationally in countries like Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Peru and Costa Rica.
