Angelica Monteiro, 2021
Angelica Monteiro (she/her) is a storyteller, educator, and movement artist from the Brazilian Amazon. Her art comes from the complexity of growing up between the rainforest and the urban landscape while also crossing continental borders. She combines movements from the umbrella of street dances, Amazonian traditions, visionary fiction, and poetry to create her embodied storytelling methodology. Angelica is passionate about creating bridges instead of borders through her art. She has a BA in Dance and Education from Universidade Federal do Pará (Brazil) and an MFA in Dance and Social Justice from the University of Texas at Austin where she currently teaches.
