AWARD-WINNING LONDON BASED CHOREOGRAPHER & MOVEMENT DIRECTOR
Fernanda Lippi, London based choreographer and movement director, founder of Zikzira Physical Theatre, has produced critically acclaimed work for film, stage and site-specific venues. Interested in innovation and exploring the potential of movement vocabulary, she has established an inimitable, exciting style.
As a Trinity Laban alumni, she performed a solo performance ‘Canvas’ at the opening of the Tate Modern, and toured ‘Même Vieux Manteux’ in Europe. Subsequently she worked with the most influential theatre companies in South America such as Teatro da Vertigem and Lot.
Fernanda’s live performances and films have exhibited at The Barbican, The Laban Theatre, Regent Street Cinema, Tate Modern, Sky Arts, Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin), Teatro Akropolis (Italy), SESC, CCBB and Itaú Espaço de Cinema (Brazil) amongst many others.
Fernanda has broken new ground exploring a combination of dance and film, which led her to choreograph ‘As Cinzas de Deus’ (Ashes of God), one of the first feature length dance films of its kind.
Her second feature film ‘Sea without Shore’ in 2015, co-directed with Andre Semenza, had its world premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival. Together with Javier de Frutos and Paul Roberts, Fernanda was invited by BalletBoyz to co-choreograph ‘Kama Sutra’, a prime-time production for Sky Arts.
Last year, she returned to live performance, choreographing 'Outro em Si', a large-scale live performance compiled of 12 dancers, commissioned by Sesc in Brazil. 'Outro em Si' was nominated for five Brazilian Sinparc Awards, picking up the coveted Best Show 2017 and Best Dancer 2017 Awards.
This summer, Fernanda re-connected with Kid Loco to not only choreograph but also performed in his latest music video, “Unfair Game” featuring Olga Kouklaki. Now available on YouTube.
