Rani Nair (SE)
Rani works as a dancer and choreographer with a special interest in decolonial practices and postcolonial aesthetics. Memory and archive is a recurring thematic in her work, e.g. through a reconstruction of her inheritance of Kurt Jooss choreography ‘Dixit Dominus', created for the Swedish based Indian dancer Lilavati, and later on as a second order performance – a performance about the performance – ‘Future Memory’.
Rani collaborates in various settings and networks, such as the self organised ‘Sweet and Tender collaborations’ and was a founding member of ‘Rörelsen – koreografer i Skåne’. She is currently a member of the art group ‘Ful’, a collective of artists from different fields working with queer feminist theories and postcolonial aesthetics. Their latest initiative – The Love Story/Solidarity Act/Performance Series/The Dream: ‘Finding Sisterhood’ – is a decolonizing and queer mapping of contemporary dance and performing arts.
