Katiana Rangel (they/them) has a long performance and teaching history in Brazil where they founded a theater and performance research group called Untitled 29, for which they translated, co-directed, and performed 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane. In NYC, Katiana recently conceived, with the anthropologist Jasmine Pisapia, the project The Vessel, directed by Richard Maxwell. They are currently working with their Untitled 29 collaborators in São Paulo. As a solo artist they have created the performance works Suspended (Movement Research at the Judson Church, Performance Art Festival in Pittsburgh, 12 Minutes Max at Base, Seattle), and Iraci or What’s Underneath My Skin (ITINERANT Festival, NYC). They are also a founding member of the dance group Les Ballets Nomades (Voices Transposed: The Refugee Crisis 2016 at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center), and a collaborator of New York City Players. They believe in art as a portal to experience the ineffable by anyone at any time. Their life research has been how to create and decentralize such works.
