Manuela Albrecht is a Brazilian interdisciplinary artist. She believes the body is political and that through movement, it becomes a medium to enhance perceptions for new reflections on the world we live in and share the resources of.
With a trajectory drawn from physical theatre, contemporary dance practices, and an in-depth study of the Viewpoints Technique with Anne Bogart, her practice revolves around the intersections between somatics and politics.
In London since 2016, she works as an independent artist and is currently undertaking an MFA in dance at Trinity Laban. Her research is within the realm of the embodiment of micro-politics through a somatic approach where she is interested in reflecting on experiences of displacement and belonging, power practices, and poetics of resistance.
