A hybrid Latinx artist, Andrea Peña was originally born in Bogota, Colombia and has carved her practice in the territory of Tiohti:áke, Montreal. As director of the multidisciplinary company AP&A (Andréa Peña & Artists), her practice as designer and choreographer, merges the body and materiality in performative, digital and sculptural works to create living arts universes. From Japan, US, Germany, France, Mexico, Greece, Spain, India and others, Peña’s works are recognized for her inter-artistic rigor that manifests in a critical, alternative and spatial universes, that breaks our notions of a sensible humanity. In 2019 she was recognized with the Banff Center’s Clifford E Lee Choreography Award.
