Andrea Torres Viedma

I am a Chilean dance artist, based in Edinburgh. My practice is situated in-between these two territories, and combines dance, choreography and research with an interest on the somatic-political aspects of moving together.

I draw from a wide range of references including contemporary dance, somatic movement, improvisation, real time composition, and Afro-Latin American dances.

My work deepens movement, sound and image and I often collaborate with other artists (e.g. musicians, visual artists, photographers, etc.).

I am currently devising an improvisation practice focused on the notion of time. For this, I adopt a decolonial feminist approach from South America, questioning dominant discourses around such notion, delving into the nuances that emerge when exploring disruptive elements such as pause, stop, and stillness.

I am a PhD candidate in Dance Studies at The University of Roehampton. I obtained an MFA in Creative Practice at Trinity Laban Conservatoire in partnership with Independent Dance and Siobhan Davies Dance. I hold a bachelor's degree in Dance and a PGCert on Foundations for Contemporary Critique for Performing Arts both at the Universidad de Chile.
