Adriana Pegorer is an interdisciplinary dance artist interested in the interweaving of forms. She presented her own research at various conferences including at 'Body, Movement and Dance in Global Perspective' (Hong Kong), ‘Touching and to be touched – Kinaesthesia and empathy in dancing’ (Berlin), the Colloque International 'Tango: Creation, Identification, Circulation' (Paris) and was invited to perform in Marta E. Savigliano's Wallflowers and Femme Fatales performance lecture at Harvard University (Boston). She contributes to the World Dance & Culture curriculum in the UK and teaches tango and contact improvisation at various schools, colleges, universities and private and public organizations.
In 2008 Adriana founded the community organization Chiaroscuro offering inclusive movement education opportunities that foreground kinaesthetic awareness over visual mimesis. It started with tango sessions at the Royal National Institute for the Blind People and it progressed into the Moving Perceptions project.
Her exploration of the fusion of Tango Argentino and Contact Improvisation started during her BA degree at Chichester University (1998-2001). Lately she organized 4 yearly research weeks at Ponderosa and continues to share the fusion at various local and international events. Recently she presented her research titled “Physic(s)al entanglements” at ECITE 2015 and “Moving the small dance” at ECITE 2014.
