nadaproductions

Founded by choreographer Amanda Piña and the visual artist Daniel Zimmermann in 2005 in Vienna, Austria.

 

nadaproductions features trans-disciplinary work centred on aspects of reception and perception through the involvement of audiences in new performance concepts. nadaproductions repertoire comprises various flexible trans-medial formats that are tailored to fit different contexts and that enable the participation of diverse segments of civil society. The works tackle socio-political and biopolitical issues and raise the question of their consequences on the bodies of individuals.

In 2009 nadaproductions founded the “Federal Ministry of Movement Affairs”, a structure at the interface of para-institution and performance, using the potential of the perception and movement of the body to enhance consciousness. In the same year nadaproductions opened the off- space performance space nadaLokal in the 15th district of Vienna.

nadaproductions creates in co-production with Tanzquartier Wien, deSingel Antwerpen, ImpulsTanzFestival, and NAVE Santiago de Chile a.o and has presented twork throughout Europe and Latin America.
