Flora Wiegmann is a Los Angeles-based dancer and choreographer. She works in both live performance and film, and has had the opportunity to collaborate with artists such as Fritz Haeg, Silke Otto-Knapp, Alix Lambert, Amy Granat, Miljohn Ruperto, Nina Waisman and Tom Lawson. Her projects have been presented at the ICA, Philadelphia; Whitney Museum of American Art and The Kitchen, New York; California Biennial and LA><ART in California, The Camden Arts Centre, London; and Universit√©Rennes. 

Wiegmann aims to recontextualize dance and grant it new possibilities for communication, and to question the limitations inherent in time-based performance. A relocation of dance from the theatrical stage to zones of different institutions as well as the outside world, gives rise to a rich and complex territory for discourse that links historical and contemporary positions of both dance and art simultaneously.
