Project summary

The common activity of Ana Pi – Brazilian-French choreographic and imagery artist at Malta Festival Poznań, Santarcangelo Festival and Spielart is the presentation of her Divine Cypher preceded by workshops with local dancers. In her work (either performative, researching or educational) Ana Pi centralises questions around Blackness, urban politics, representation and decolonial practices. Divine Cypher is focused on the contemporary transformation of the Haiti tradition and convinced from an anthropological, historical and urban perspective of a body. It has been selected because of both its high level of artistic and educational quality, its combination of all kinds of Pi’s activities and its potential in building the relationship with the local community of all three festivals.
