(//Longer...)

Andros Zins-Browne (b. 1981, New York) is an American choreographer who lives in Brussels. His work consists of live and hybrid environments at the intersection between installation, performance and conceptual dance. Crossing between stage and exhibition spaces, he explores the ways that images, movement and matter can interact until they begin to take on each other's properties.

Andros began studying ballet at an early age at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. After completing a degree in Art Semiotics at Brown University (US, 1998-2002). He moved to Brussels in 2002 to study at the Performing Arts Research and Training Studios P.A.R.T.S (BE, 2002-2006) and later pursued a research in the fine arts program at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (NL, 2010-2011). His research project Immaterial Bodies, Embodied Materials spawned The Host (2010) in which three cowboys battle a gigantic inflatable set, and Welcome To The Jungle (2012) which developed themes of "global weirding", and how to consider choreography in terms of space and the seemingly inanimate.

Aside from his performances as a dancer with Jonathan Burrows, Mette Ingvartsen, Tino Sehgal, and Maria Hassabi a.o., Zins-Browne’s own creations, in which he often collaborates with visual artists, have been produced and/or presented across Europe including a.o at the Centre Pompidou Paris, ICA London, HAU Berlin, PACT Zollverein, STUK, MDT Stockholm, Het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, De Singel Antwerp, EMPAC, Troy, New York, Kaaitheater Brussels and the Impulse Festival, Düsseldorf where he received the Goethe Institute Award for his performance The Host.

His solo Already Unmade, commissioned by Boghossian Foundation and has recently been performed at the BOZAR Museum in Brussels, The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, and The Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai.

Currently he's touring Atlas Revisited, a performance made in collaboration with visual artist Karthik Pandian, where the artists implicate themselves within the problems of trying to motivate freedom. For this, they set out to a desert in Morocco to 'liberate' a group of camels by trying to get them to perform a dance piece by Merce Cunningham. In 2018 they will have their first solo exhibition related to the project.

From 2007-2014, Andros was an associated artist with wp Zimmer in Antwerp. Since 2014, he is represented by Hiros, an artist management company in Brussels. In 2013 he founded his own association, The Great Indoors. He is currently an artist in residence at Netwerk Art Center in Aalst, Belgium until 2019.
