Luciana Freire D’Anunciação is a Brazilian artist who holds an MFA degree from Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada). Driven by the uncountable artistic possibilities of being expressive through the body, D’Anunciação has invested her career in body training from butoh to contact improvisation, somatic dance practices and physical theatre. Her pieces has a starting point her own perceptive interactions within the world and social contexts, which make her pieces very personal and appealing to the human senses. Her works have a strong dialogue with video, installation, and sound. She has performed and exhibited in festivals and venues internationally such as Chance Ecologies (NY), Biennial de Performance Deformes 2014 (Chile), LIVE Biennale 2013 (Vancouver), the European Performance Art Festival 2011 in Poland (EPAF).
My art is the movement between one idea and other. An impulse that leads to a gesture that leads to an image that leads to a sensation that leads to an impulse that leads. My art is the word that fails to conceptualize my work. Share.Time. Space. Presence. Honesty. My art is the contradiction between control and freedom, joy and struggle, self-indulgence and generosity. It is about me letting myself be what others see as I become the mixture of what my instincts had always suggested and a foreign idea that perfectly concludes the work. My art is an opened heart. Imperfect. My art is the small thing that is huge, the simple thing that is complicated, the ordinary thing that is fascinating. At least for me. Maybe for you? Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel?
