Vanguard Contemporary artist
Performance Artist, Choreographer
Paula Chaves is a Colombian choreographer, performer and activist based in Amsterdam. Born and raised within the boom of narco-paramilitarism and the expansion of globalised politics, she conceives art as a survival strategy and device able to hack the hegemonic power structures at play. Marked by her migratory paths, Chaves’ artistic research is situated at the intersection of non-western feminist practices, dance and interdisciplinary art.
