Biography

Andros Zins-Browne (b. 1981, New York) is an American choreographer who lives and works between New York and Brussels. His work consists of live and hybrid environments at the intersection between installation, performance and conceptual dance. His performances work on twisting the embodied and the virtual, until these distinct terms begin to lose their borders. How bodies produce images and vice-versa is a question central to Zins-Browne's investigations, and where he finds that 'the truth is usually the contradiction.'

Zins-Browne’s performances have been presented at Centre Pompidou, DeSingel Antwerp, EMPAC Troy, HAU Berlin, ICA London, Kaaitheater Brussels, MDT Stockholm, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Impulse Festival where he received a Goethe Institute Award for The Host. His solo Already Unmade, commissioned by the Boghossian Foundation has recently been performed at BOZAR Museum in Brussels, The Whitney Museum in New York City, the Rockbund Museum, Shanghai, and Fondation Galeries Lafayette in Paris. He recently completed two collaborative performances with Will Rawls- The Tony Cokes Remixes for the 10th Berlin Biennial, and See-Saw an original reinterpretation of Simone Forti's piece in the Judson Dance exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York. His collaboration with visual artist Karthik Pandian- Atlas Unlimited- has been presented in Belgium and Chicago. In Fall, 2019 it will open at 80WSE gallery in New York City.

In 2013, Andros founded The Great Indoors, an association for artistic research and production.
