Chloe Calderon Chotrani (b. 1992, Metro Manila)
Dance Artist & Cultural Manager based in Singapore
As a dance artist, Chloe has trained on the streets of Metro Manila for twelve years, danced on the sand dunes in West Africa, performed a solo piece on proscenium stages and collaborated with dancers and designers to show work in galleries, sculpture fields and at a hair salon in New York. Her practice is diversified, experimental and inter-disciplinary. Essentially, she uses movement to question society.
Chloe's movement methodology is deeply rooted in yoga and meditation as a way of life. She continuously explores a wide spectrum of the movement arts, ranging from traditional to contemporary, it's philosophies and relationship to nature. Her creative research is oriented towards her heritage and ancestry; the dance ethnography of Southeast Asia and eco-feminism and decolonisation of the Filipina people.
