About Us

nadaproductions

Founded by choreographer Amanda Piña and the visual artist Daniel Zimmermann in 2005 in Vienna, Austria. Nadaproductions features trans-disciplinary work centred on aspects of reception and perception through the involvement of audiences in new performance concepts. nadaproductions repertoire comprises various flexible trans-medial formats that are tailored to fit different contexts and that enable the participation of diverse segments of civil society. The works tackle socio-political and biopolitical issues and raise the question of their consequences on the bodies of individuals. nadaproductions gained international recognition with the performance “WAR – Ein Kriegstanz” (2013), dealing with the changing function of traditional dances and with the representation of violence in the media.

Since 2015 nadaproductions is working on a long-term project “Endangered Human Movements” dedicated to dances and practices that have already vanished or are threatened with extinction. three productions in the scope of this project have been realized : “Four remarks on the history of dance” (2014), “Dance & Resistance” (2016) and “The Forest of Mirrors” (2017). “The School of the Jaguar” (2017), and the performance “The Jaguar and The Snake”.

In 2009 nadaproductions founded the “Federal Ministry of Movement Affairs”, a structure at the interface of para-institution and performance, using the potential of the perception and movement of the body to enhance consciousness. In the same year nadaproductions opened the off- space performance space nadaLokal in the 15th district of Vienna.
