Anh Vo

 

Anh Vo is a Vietnamese choreographer, dancer, theorist, and activist. They create dances and produce texts about pornography and queer relations, about being and form, about identity and abstraction, about history and its colonial reality. Currently based in Brooklyn, they earn their degrees in Performance Studies from Brown University (BA) and New York University (MA). Their two evening-length productions, 69 Views From The Bottom (2017) and Interbeing (2016), have been presented by Brown University and Production Workshop. The early versions of their current work BABYLIFT (2018-present) have been shown at Chez Bushwick, Movement Research at Judson Church (upcoming), Hollins University, and Movement Research Open performance. Their artistic process has been supported by residencies at Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation, Tisch/Danspace, and the Performance Project Fellowship at University Settlement. 

As a writer, they focus on experimental practices in contemporary dance and pornography. Their texts have been featured on Walker Reader (USA), Women and Performance (USA), Real Life Magazine (USA), Critical Correspondence (USA), The Indy (USA), Etcetera (Belgium), Blackness and the Post-modern (Finland), and The Theatre Times (Canada).
