Biography



Andros Zins-Browne (b. 1981, New York) is an American choreographer who lives and works in Brussels. His work consists of dance performances and hybrid environments at the intersection between installation, performance and conceptual dance, and explores the ways in which the human body, movement and matter can interact until they appear to take on each other’s properties. Zins-Browne’s performances, which cross regularly between stage and fine art contexts have been presented mainly across Europe including the Centre Pompidou Paris, Dance Umbrella London, HAU Berlin, MDT Stockholm, Het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Bozar Museum in Brussels, De Singel Antwerp, Kaaitheater Brussels and the Impulse Festival, Düsseldorf where he received the Goethe Institute Award for his performance The Host. At The Villa Empain in Brussels, Already Unmade was presented as a series of solo performances by four dancers, throughout the duration of the exhibition. His most recent performance Atlas Revisited, a collaboration with visual artist Karthik Pandian, was produced and premiered at EMPAC in Troy, NY in 2016. In 2013, Andros founded his own association for artistic research and production, The Great Indoors.

His research project Immaterial Bodies, Embodied Materials spawned The Host (2010) in which three cowboys battle a gigantic inflatable set, and Welcome To The Jungle (2012) which developed themes of "global weirding", and how to consider choreography in terms of space and the seemingly inanimate.
