Announcing Summer 2021 Residents
Angela Arteritano is a Venezuelan multidisciplinary artist, choreographer, and researcher, based in the United States. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art and a Master of Fine Arts in Choreography. Her work deals with issues of migration and identity through an interdisciplinary choreographic practice. With over ten years of experience in traditional Flamenco, she has developed an experimental practice that is rooted in tradition but pursues new ways of understanding. Her multidisciplinary work has been presented in art galleries, performing arts theaters, and alternative spaces throughout the United States and internationally. Some of these spaces include The Miramar Cultural Center; Bayou Theater, Match Theater; Texas State Galleries; Denton Arts Center; among others. Additionally, her work has been recognized and supported by various non-profit organizations and institutions, including the local recognition of 2021 Cultural Power Grant Awardee by San Jose’s leading Latinx Art Organization – MACLA. With this recognition Arteritano is set up to begin creating new work in the bay area and is excited to start sharing her processes with her new surrounding communities.

She has danced for several well-known choreographers, including Victoria Marks, Cheng-Chieh Yu, Michel Kouakou, Ros Warby, Jorge Crecis, and Darren Ellis.
