Ana Pi BR/FR
Ana Pi is a choreographer and visual artist, researcher in urban dance, extemporary dancer and educator. Her practice is situated among notions of transit, displacement, belonging, overlapping, memory, color and ordinary gestures.
In 2020, she created the structure NA MATA LAB. NoirBLUE—les déplacements d’une danse (2018 – 27 min) is her first documentary and VÓS (2011 – 5 min 30 sec) is her first video essay. In her pieces O BΔNQUETE, COROA, NoirBLUE, DRW2 and Le Tour du Monde des Danses Urbaines en 10 villes, she weaves together choreography, speech and installation. And with CORPO FIRME; danças periféricas, gestos sagrados, she collects and combines practices that she has shared in the form of dance workshops since 2010.
She is now finishing her new creation, The Divine Cypher, a project in Haiti for which she received a fellowship for arts in Latin America from the MoMA (New York) and Cisneros Institute. She is also associated choreographer with the Dancing Museums project in France, and associated artist with the Latitudes Contemporaines production office.
She is developing the choreographic exhibition WOMEN PART 3 in collaboration with Ghyslaine Gau and Annabel Guérédrat, and the installation Rádio Concha with the philosopher Maria Fernanda Novo. Lastly, for RACE, her latest essay combining dance and image, she is working with @FavelinhaDance and Chassol.
