Amanda Piña

Danza y Frontera

Endangered Human Movements Vol. 4
Chile, Mexico, Austria
Amanda Piña is a Mexican-Chilean-Austrian choreographer and dancer based in Vienna. Her choreographic work examines the possibilities of decolonisation and her performances reference all cultures and epochs.
Danza y Frontera is inspired by a dance that arose along the border between Mexico and the USA. It returns to a pre-Hispanic form of dance, combining this with new forms of movement. Basic elements of this widely practiced dance form have continued to evolve to this day. They have been preserved and handed down as a performative act of resistance against colonial and later neo-liberal forces. Choreographer Amanda Piña and her dancers transpose this tradition into the present – with pop culture references that fuse indigenous movement practices and sounds, colonial narratives, hip-hop culture and mysticism into a compelling performance.
