BOGOTÁ

Andrea Peña & Artists

A skillful fusion of dance, industrial design and queer aesthetics, BOGOTÁ by Andrea Peña & Artists marked the opening of the 17th Venice Biennale. A large-scale, radical and innovative work.

A choreographer with a hybrid background combining dance and design, Andrea Peña is renowned for her rigorous conceptual creations, conceived as installations, where the body dialogues with materiality. Of dual Canadian-Colombian origin, she revisits her Latin-American roots with a resolutely postcolonial eye. Working with nine performers and some fifteen collaborators, BOGOTÁ recreates the teeming, highly contrasted landscape of the Colombian capital, where chaos, collective resilience and effervescent creativity come together. Inspired by Latin American baroque and ancestral magic realism from a queer perspective, the work delves into the themes of death and rebirth so deeply rooted in this culture. Visceral, transgressive and spellbinding, this is a daring challenge, halfway between stage performance and dance theater, that pushes off every limit!
