Meritxell was born in Barcelona in 1983. She first trained in classical, modern and contemporary dance in Spain. In 2006 she joined the Folkwang Hochshule University if Essen (Germany). Throughout her career, she always combines her own artistic creation with Wilky_Troc (creating her own pieces such as "Last Picture" or "Protocolo") by surrounding herself with international performers and artists. She worked with Alias Compagnie (Switzerland), the Tanztheater Wuppertal of Pina Bausch (Germany) as guest dancer and the Staatstheater Kassel (Germany) with Johannes Wieland. In 2015 she set up the Tanztheater Social Project to bring dance to non-professionales dancers. In the meantime, she started to work on "Etairas" setting the first basis of her new show to come. She has been working the last year with the Stopgap Dance Company (United Kingdom). She joined the Compagnie DCA in 2010 and danced in OctopusPanoramaContact and Courtepointe.
