About Us

23Krome is a Miami-based group of creators founded by Nicole Pedraza and Trish Gutierrez. 

Trish Gutierrez and Nicole Pedraza are both multidisciplinary artists of Latine descent who aim to create transdisciplinary art that speaks to their unique experience. Drawing from our heritage, we meld diverse artistic disciplines - dance, visual art, and technology - to craft immersive experiences that transcend stereotypes. Our pieces are a dance of harmony and contrast, a tapestry of movement, sound, and visuals that evoke emotions, challenge perceptions, and celebrate the beauty of diversity. With Trish’s extensive background in building/programming tech driven experiences and Nicole’s expertise in dance/choreography, we invite you to join us on a transformative journey, where cultures converge and art becomes a powerful agent of connection and change.

Pedraza and Gutierrez were awarded Locust Project’s 2023 WaveMaker Grant. With the grant funds, they created an immersive dance/projection experience titled Quiero Bailar Contigo that premiered at the Deering Estate in April 2024. Together, they also worked on the environmental dance film “Caracoles En Cemento” which was an official selection for Subculture Film Fest, Festival Videodanza de Puerto Rico, Screen Dance Miami, and 19º Festival Internacional De Cine De Rengo Chile.

Nicole Pedraza is a dancer, choreographer, dance educator and arts administrator born and raised in Miami, FL. After graduating from New World School of the Arts (NWSA) high school in 2018, Nicole continued her studies, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance in 2021 from NWSA/University of Florida. Upon graduation, Nicole danced with Peter London Global Dance Company and was invited to be a part of Miami DanceMakers, a dance initiative supporting local choreographers led by Adele Myers and Dancers. Nicole has been teaching dance since 2018 and has taught a wide variety of age ranges from 5 to 18 years old.
