Amanda Gatti (Brazilian-Italian) is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher based between London and Madrid. She was born in Porto Alegre, southern Brazil. Since 2013, she has an ongoing investigation in the performing and visual arts. Her projects are permeated by experimental cinema, as well as walking as an artistic practice, in addition to themes such as identity and displacement.

 

With a trajectory traced in the performing arts, street arts, cinema and video art, she presented her work in galleries, and institutions in countries such as Brazil, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. Currently undertaking a MA in Performing Arts and Visual Culture at the Museo Reina Sofía, in Madrid/Spain. She's graduated in Audiovisual Production from PUCRS (Brazil) with an Academic Mobility in Art History from UJA (Spain). She also trained with scenic artists, including Odin Teatret, Théâtre du Soleil, Imitating The Dog, among other renowned artists.

 

Co-founder of Território de Rupturas, currently based in the United Kingdom, Germany and Brazil, which researches and develops projects based on the terms “border” and “immigration”, understood as a place of “difference” in the theory of “Dérive ” by Guy Debord on the act of walking and Georges Perec's concept of “Infraordinary”, which relates everyday life and art.

Amanda facilitated the workshop “City, Dérive and Performance Art” in Portugal (2022) for the members of the research “Arqueologias Afetivas ” and the virtual workshop “Becoming Action - Body & Memory” (2021) for people from Latin America and Europe, still in the context of Covid-19.

She uses her multidisciplinary experiences to create and collaborate with several artists in site-specific performances, outdoor urban performances presented to large crowds, video arts/films and transmedia projects. As a producer, she managed festivals, plays, films and artistic events in Brazil and in international co-productions.

 

She is currently developing and collaborating on some projects, including: 'Litoral - What we carry  with us' a video art with images recorded in two coastal cities (Tramandaí/BR and Brighton/UK); 'My body is not your country' a solo show performed by Marta Bonito and directed by Amanda; and 'After My Self' an experimental short film directed by Pedro Mendes.
