Janna Meiring is a performing artist, improviser, teacher, and writer. The core of her interest lies in the body as site, resource, archive, and connecting-point to all things--tangible and intangible. She seeks to rattle-up and give form to the deepest knowings that are held in the body in order to reweave a new personal and collective narrative. Her creative work manifests in many forms: performance installation and site-specific events, collaborative new work, facilitating, and teaching.
Janna was recently an artist-in-residence at E|MERGE Collaborative Residency at Earthdance. She is currently based in Philadelphia, PA, where she has performed with The Institute for Psychogeographic Adventure (IPA) in Philadelphia FringeArts 2014, Vervet Dance, From the Earth Dance Project, Antonia & Artists, and also presented solo work at ETC Series at the Community Education Center.
