Chloe Calderon Chotrani (b. 1992, Singaporean)
Chloe is a Manila born and Singapore based movement artist. She has performed and trained internationally with Romançon Dance Company (Manila), B Supreme (London), Ecole Des Sables (Senegal), Omi International Dance Collective (Hudson), Evidence/Ronald Brown Dance Community (New York), Movement Research (New York), and Gati Dance Forum (New Delhi).
She holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Asian Art from the School of Oriental and African Studies (London) and a BA in Arts Management, completed through a full dance scholarship at De La Salle–Benilde in Manila. Currently, she performs for local dance companies that work in-between the space of both traditional and contemporary; P7:1SMA and Chowk. She is also an Associate Artist with Dance Nucleus.
Occasionally, as a writer, she reviews dance performances for regional arts publication Arts Equator, creates content, and writes for an archive of Southeast Asian performing artists. Interdependently, her artistic practice is rooted on the studies on softness, which she explores as a way of life. When she's not dancing or writing, she is tending to plants in her food garden, immersed in nature, and making space for nothingness.
