Anabella Lenzu
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: My Artist Statement By Anabella Lenzu Art is a political act. Dance is discipline and revolt. My body is my country. I react to my environment and use the body as a receptacle and messenger of the multiple realities that we are immersed in. My work reflects my experience as a Latina/European artist living in New York and comes from a deep examination of my motivations as a woman, mother, and immigrant. Performance is a conduit for examining cultural identity through form and content, as well as relationships between people and society. Sharing my point of view of life with others is my duty and my pleasure. I investigate the interior logic of performance and the role of a dancer in our culture today, redefining the parameters of dance and theater. My works live inside and outside of the theatrical traditions and venues. My art is about celebration and criticism of socio-political and cultural barriers. It is a ceremony of awareness. I explore rituals to document intimacy and organize layers of character driven drama, and break apart quotidian social gestures. I am creating a living vocabulary of meaningful movement that springs directly from emotions with visceral strength. By using movement, spoken word, sounds, music, photographs, video projections, masks and props as tools, I create a dialogue to provoke a cathartic experience in the audience. The principle that drives my work is that Motion creates Emotion, and Emotion creates Motion. I love to work and collaborate in an atmosphere of creativity, respect, responsibility, honesty, independence and freedom.
