Dani d’Emilia is an artist and educator working in the fields of performance, visual art, devised theatre, radical pedagogy and social justice. She is particularly interested in embodied political-affective practices that merge artistic, activist and spiritual realms, and has been developing a vast body of work around the concept-practice of ‘Radical Tenderness’. Dani is a co-founder of the immersive theatre company Living Structures (UK) and the art space Roundabout.lx (PT). She was a core member of the performance collectives La Pocha Nostra (MX/US) between 2011-2016 and the duo Proyecto Inmiscuir (MX/ES) between 2015-2017. Since 2017 Dani has been working as part of the collective Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures and during 2018-19, with the support of Musagetes, she began collaborating with Vanessa Andreotti on the artistic-pedagogic investigation, “Engaged dis-identifications,” which was developed in close relation to Dani’s work with ANDlab (Research Centre for Art-Thinking & Politics of Togetherness) with whom she has been creating a series of pedagogical experiments around the expansion of intimacy through practices of dis-immunization and dis-solution.
