Flora Wiegmann is a Los Angeles-based dancer and
choreographer. She works in both live
performance and film, and has had the opportunity to collaborate with artists
such as Fritz Haeg, Silke Otto-Knapp, Alix Lambert, Amy Granat, Miljohn
Ruperto, Nina Waisman and Tom Lawson. Her projects have been presented at the
ICA, Philadelphia; Whitney Museum of American Art and The Kitchen, New York;
California Biennial and LA><ART in California, The Camden Arts Centre,
London; and UniversitéRennes.
Wiegmann aims to
recontextualize dance and grant it new possibilities for communication, and to
question the limitations inherent in time-based performance. A relocation of
dance from the theatrical stage to zones of different institutions as well as
the outside world, gives rise to a rich and complex territory for discourse
that links historical and contemporary positions of both dance and art simultaneously.
