ANDROS ZINS-BROWNE
USA

New York City, 1981

Born in New York (US, 1981), Andros Zins-Browne, began practicing ballet at an early age at the Joffrey Ballet School. 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). He later pursued a research program at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (NL, 2010-2011) to work on his research project Immaterial Bodies, Embodied Materials. This work spawned his creation, Welcome To The Jungle which developed themes of climate change, "global weirding", and how to consider choreography not only in terms of bodies but in terms of space and the seemingly inanimate as well.

Aside from his performances as a dancer with Jonathan Burrows, Mette Ingvartsen, Tino Sehgal, and Maria Hassabi, Zins-Browne’s own creations, in which he often collaborates with visual artists, have been produced and/or presented across Europe including the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Dance Umbrella in London, HAU in Berlin, PACT Zollverein in Essen, MDT in Stockholm, Vooruit in Gent, De Singel in Antwerp, Kaaitheater in Brussels and the Theater Festival Impulse, Düsseldorf where he received the Goethe Institute Award for The Host. Since 2007, Andros has been an associated artist with wp Zimmer in Antwerp which has helped provide logistic, administrative and (post-) production support. In March 2015, he will premiere his new production, The Middle Ages, at the Vooruit in Gent.
