Andrea Peña, Choreographer for Fly 2019
For the 9th edition of Project Fly, the creation laboratory dedicated to professional integration, choreographer Andrea Peña is invited to collaborate with six dancers recently graduated from EDCM. This project allows young dancers to take part in a paid creative internship, led by professional choreographers.
Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Andrea Peña is a multidisciplinary artist whose creative practice transverses the fields of art installation, choreography and design. Founded in 2014, Andrea Peña & Artists is recognized within Canada and internationally for her creation of critical, alternative and spatial universes that rupture our notions of a sensible humanity and engage in deep encounters between the physical body and the self. Peña’s highly intricate, vulnerable and raw choreography, is situated at a national and international scale presenting works in Hong Kong, Spain, India, Panama, Mexico, Dominican Republic and Canada. Nationally Peña’s works have been presented by DanseDanse, Attakalari India Biennale, Arsenal Art Contemporain, Festival Quartiers Danses, Maison de la Culture Maisonneuve, Musee des Beaux Arts, Canadian Center for Architecture, Hong Kong International Choreography Festival, Festival International de Dansa de la Cuidad de Mexico, AADK Spain, IONION Arts Center Greece, Laval Symphony Orchestra and SpringBoard, amongst others. Peña has been highlighted with numerous awards for her conceptual and highly rigorous creations, recently including the 2018 Banff Arts Center's Clifford E. Lee Canadian Choreography award and the 2018 Hong Kong International Choreography Award.
EDCM invites 2019, 2018 and 2017 graduates to register to the audition that will take place on April 13th.
Deadline to register: April 12th at 5 p.m. at the Reception of the School or by email.
