Cora Laszlo is a Brazilian dance-maker, teacher, and researcher currently based in LA. Her practices focus on dance improvisation, presence studies, decolonial practices, and critical pedagogies. Cora’s work is based on the Klauss Vianna Technique—a Brazilian Technique of dance and somatic education rooted in improvisation. While in Brazil, Cora established a career as a choreographer and dancer, receiving grants to develop her projects and collaborating with multiple artists. In 2018, she moved to New York, where she created new works such as the solos December 32, I Swallow Your Silence, and GAMBIARRA-Imaginary Solutions for Love. In New York, she performed at venues like Movement Research at Judson Church, MR Open Performance, Triskelion Stage Dive, La Mama, Fi:Af, ¡Spontaneous Combustion!, and The Craft. Cora received the LEIMAY Arts in the Community Garden Fellowship; and City Artist Corps Grant. Cora is also interested in videodances, having performed and directed virtual live performances and created the videodance series QUARENTANZ. In dialogue with her artistic career, Cora is a dance scholar, holding a BA in Dance and a Licentiate degree in Dance Teaching from Unicamp (Brazil), a specialization degree in Klauss Vianna Technique from PUC-SP (Brazil), and a MA in Performance Studies at NYU. She is now in LA, where she is pursuing a PhD in Cultures and Performance at UCLA. Cora is the author of Outros Caminhos de Dança, a book about the Klauss Vianna Technique published in Brazil.
