Informance with Amalia Colon-Nava

Hi! My name is Amalia and I’m a Philadelphia based artist hosting a show-and-talk of sorts with the help of PDP Presents.  A few years ago I started on a project with the help of Tobias Sköld to create dance films zeroing in on different parts of the body. Taking advantage of the vantage points available with a camera and giving very specific body parts a chance at center stage.
