Sara Anjo (PT 1982) is a dancer and choreographer interested in meditative practices that generate psico-physical changes, breathing and walking are the main ones. She permanently questions herself about: what moves us? How do we move? And to where are we moving? As a maker she is interested in choreographic proposals that activate a sonic theatre, where choreography and the performative space are explored through soundscape. She devised “Nobody would know to tell that story” a feminist performance where she collaborated with 6 female artists (BoxNova CCB 2011); “Liquid Landscapes” a travelling dance in an old washing house in Lisbon (Teatro do Silêncio 2012); “Shaped as a Tree”, a solo about dis-quietness (Negócio ZDB 2016); “Sacrum”, a magnetic walking (Negócio ZDB 2018). Since 2012 makes part of the project “Walking” from Teatro do Silêncio. She has graduated in the Contemporary Dance Academy (2001). She holds a master in choreography from Das Graduate School in Amsterdam (2016).
