Piña

is a Mexican-Chilean-Austrian choreographer, dancer and cultural worker living between Vienna and Mexico City. Her choreographic work is concerned with the decolonisation of art, focusing on the political and social power of dance, understood as a social-environmental movement.

Her performances are contemporary rituals for temporary dismantling the ideological separations between modern and traditional, the human, the animal and the vegetal, nature and culture. Amanda Piña is interested in making art beyond the idea of a product and in developing new frameworks for the creation of sensual experiences.

„These dances are in fact creative social devices to visualize and intervene into socio-environmental relations, stressing the interdependence between all life forms in this mountainous region.“ — Alessandro Questa

Climatic Dances is the name of the fifth volume of the Endangered Human Movements*, a long-term research carried out by choreographer Amanda Piña on the current loss of planetary cultural and biological diversity. Inspired in two dances from the Highlands of Puebla in Mexico, danced by Masewal people, in a context of climate change and mining exploitation. These two dances Tipekajomeh and Wewentiyo constitute the beginning of a trip towards the depths of the mountain and towards the re-enchantment of that which modern science called geology. 

* Endangered Human Movements is the title of a long-term project, started in the year 2014, focusing on human movement practices, which have been cultivated for centuries all over the world.
