Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Andrea Peña is a multidisciplinary artist whose creative practice transverses the fields of art installation, choreography and design. Founded in 2014, Andrea
Peña & Artists is recognized within Canada and internationally for her creation of critical, alternative and spatial universes that that rupture our notions of a sensible humanity and engage
in deep encounters between the physical body and the self. Peña’s highly intricate, vulnerable and raw choreography, is situated at a national and international scale presenting works in Hong
Kong, Spain, India, Panama, Mexico, Dominican Republic and Canada. Nationally Peña’s works have been presented by DanseDanse, Attakalari India Biennale, Arsenal Art Contemporain, Festival
