Rochita's workshop practice is influenced by Adrienne Maree Brown, by Edouard Glissant’s work on relationality, by Rolando Vazquez and various thinkers on decoloniality and decolonial practice. Her interest lies in stimulating and encouraging makers, thinkers and dreamers to explore beyond what is the comfort zone.
