Andros Zins-Browne and Juliette Mapp


Andros Zins-Browne (b. 1981, New York) is an American choreographer who lives and works between New York and Brussels. He makes performances at the intersection of installation and dance that twist embodiment and virtuality. His work has been shown at a.o.- Centre Pompidou, Paris; ICA, London; Kaaitheater, Brussels, Het Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the 10th Berlin Bienniale. In 2010 he received a Goethe Institute Award for The Host. In 2013, he founded The Great Indoors, an association for artistic research and production. For their collaborative project Atlas Unlimited - a series of migrating exhibtions in sculpture and performance, Zins-Browne and visual artist Karthik Pandian received a grant from the Graham Foundation in 2018. His recent solo Already Unmade, was commissioned by the Boghossian Foundation and has been performed at BOZAR Museum, Brussels; The Whitney Museum in New York, and the Rockbund Museum in Shanghai. 

Juliette Mapp is a dancer, choreographer and professor of Choreography in the profile area of Concept and Composition at the Research Centre at Stockholm University of the Arts. Previous to moving to Stockholm, Juliette lived and worked in New York City for over twenty years. During that time, Juliette was awarded two New York Dance and Performance (“Bessie”) Awards; the first for her dancing and the second for her choreography.  In 2010, Juliette curated the Danspace Project Platform Back To New York City. In 2012, she was a guest curator within the Judson Now Platform and co-curated that year’s Movement Research Fall Festival Back to Basic. She has written about her teaching, performing and choreographic practices in the Performing Arts Journal, The Movement Research Performance Journal, Contact Quarterly and in the Dancer as Agent collection for the online Journal SARMA. Juliette has been on the faculty of The George Washington University, Fordham University, Bard College, Barnard College, Hunter College and at The Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at the New School.
