Guest Artist Support Sessions: Nando Messias
We all need a little support right now, and Artsadmin’s Artist Support team is here for you. In addition to re-opening our one-to-one Creative Support Service in March, we’ve invited six fantastic artists who are each offering six one-hour sessions in March and April. These sessions are a place to speak about the big ideas of your art and dig into the creative corners you might feel stuck in.
Nando Messias is a London based performance artist, choreographer and queer academic.
Introduction from Nando:
My name is Nando. I am a trans, non-binary performance artist and researcher. My work is based on my lived experience and deals with social violence and exclusion. I am originally from Brazil but have been living and working in London since 2003.
I have an MA in Performance and a PhD from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I am a freelance artist and have experience in devising autobiographical, solo work and teaching. I have written critical essays using queer theory to analyse my work. As well as my solo work, I have worked in collaboration with other artists and have worked independently as a movement director. While I would prioritise speaking with Trans, non-binary, queer artists I’m happy to talk to any artist who needs support.
These sessions are now filled but you can still book a Creative Support Session with one of the Artsadmin team.
This workshop series is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.
This session is delivered online via Zoom. We can embed captions via Otter.ai captions and offer BSL interpretation upon request.
