Jeepneys (Anna Luisa Petrisko) is a Los Angeles-based multimedia artist working primarily in dance, sound, video, and performance. She holds a BA from UCLA and an MFA in Music and Integrated Media from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). Named after the iconic converted WWII army jeeps of the Philippines, she is of mixed race Filipina and Slovak heritage and her work focuses on the complexities of identity, memory, and language through a decolonizing and critical lens. In her teaching practice, she develops techniques that focus on healing through movement and sound therapy. She is also a yoga and fitness teacher as well as a trained dancer and considers her teaching practice as an extension of her art. Jeepneys' work is a practice of magic and intuition, as well as an exploration of the mind/body connection. She has performed, screened, and taught all over the U.S. and Europe and is very happy to be teaching in Berlin for the first time in partnership with Tatwerk.
