Flavia Pinheiro

Profile

Flavia Pinheiro (Recife) is a choreographer and performer from Recife, Brazil based in Amsterdam. She studied at DAS Choreography, the master’s programme of the Amsterdam University of the Arts, where she did research on bacteria, spirits and science. Her graduation piece 7 Abiku Solos for 11 bacteria falling through was supported by the Aart Janszen Fonds and ID Lab and was awarded an Andre Veltkamp Grant.

Flavia makes performances, videos, installations and urban interventions in collaboration with artists from different disciplines, such as contemporary music, visual arts, video and digital arts. She radically confronts audiences with the roots of Western and colonial systems of knowledge and codes that have created and normalised exclusionary practices.

Flavia Pinheiro was selected as a maker by De Balie, De Ateliers and Veem, House of Performance (Engaged Art Coalitie) for the 3Package Deal 2022-2023, the international talent development programme of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts.

In 2021, as a master’s student, Flavia took part in Immerse, the annual Holland Festival programme for artists from the Netherlands and abroad who are at the start of an international career.
