Ana Jordão is a multidisciplinary performer working and researching in the fields of contemporary circus, dance and improvisation.
Her work is based on a rich hybridity of circus and dance skills as well as an endless curiosity and openness to experiment.
After completing a BA in Media and Cultural Studies in Edinburgh in 2006 and a degree in Circus Arts in Berlin in 2011 (specialising as a flyer of hand to hand and dance acrobatics) she continued to work as a duo in various group creation projects throughout Europe.
While simultaneously collaborating with other artists, in 2015 Ana creates her first solo full-length piece "I am (k)not". With this piece, she positions herself for the first time as the author full-length stage work. In 2018, she starts her second piece entitled "Can a shadow have a person?" (working title). This project gets pre-selected by the Circus Next Platform (platform for emerging authors in the field of contemporary circus).
Ana continues to be actively involved in gathering physical and intellectual knowledge in order to continue refining her personal performative language, a work she regularly shares in her workshops Europe wide.
In the past few years, she has worked with teachers such as Sharon Fridman, Ricardo de Paula, Jozef Frucek, Bruno Caverna, Alexandre Fray, Tom Weksler, Aragorn Boulanger, and Jean-Michel Guy, who have greatly influenced her in her journey of continuously blending the boundaries between circus and dance.
