Chloe C. Chotrani
My experiences have brought me to learn dancing on the streets of Metro Manila to the waters of West Africa and the downtown dance scene in New York. I have facilitated class in residencies, with dance/theatre companies, and for the community in the different part of the world — mostly, Manila and where I am based now, Singapore. I have discovered my power in movement and it has brought me to become culturally mobile, to see with many eyes. My lineage is rooted in India, Philippines, and Singapura. Working with a deep curiosity for the world, for relations, and for ancestry. My aim in creation is to move beyond cultural boundaries. My manifesto is an exploration on the deep relationship between woman and nature. The collective healing that is called for asks that we find the power from within — our inner landscape as a source to draw from.
