Tutor, DAS Theatre
THIRD Fellow (Cohort 3), DAS Research
Andrea Božić is a choreographer and artist from Croatia, living and working in Amsterdam. Her educational background includes dance, literature, English, film, theatre and media art. In Croatia, she studied modern dance and earned a degree in Comparative Literature and English Language at the University of Zagreb. In the Netherlands, she graduated from the School For New Dance Development and the Amsterdam Master of Choreography (DAS Choreography, 2004), both at the Academy of Theatre and Dance, Amsterdam.
Her work is in-disciplinary and site-responsive and takes form of live performance, installation, constructions for specific locations, collaborations with the weather and night sky and other playful formats. The work reorganizes perception combining conceptual with sensorial and physical, creates paradoxical situations and asks questions about attention and imagination, perception of presence, the politics of viewing, presentation of reality and the organisation and distribution of authorship.
She has collaborated with visual artist Julia Willms and sound artist Robert Pravda since 2005 with whom she founded in-disciplinary platform TILT in 2009, to inspire and support artistic practice and thinking beyond disciplines.
From 2012-2015, Andrea was mentor at the DAS Choreography and since 2012 she is tutor at DAS Theatre, both MA programmes at the DAS Graduate School, Academy for Theatre and Dance Amsterdam. Since 2016, Andrea is researcher at DAS Research.
