Mavi Veloso

Mavi Veloso is a Brazilian performer based in Amsterdam who works transdisciplinarily, integrating visual art, dance, theater, and music. Her work explores performativity, the relationship between performer and audience, trans feminism and decolonization. As a transgender and migrant from South America to Europe, Mavi seeks to embody and appropriate the transformation process, psychological, social and physical, conflicts and cultural adaptation procedures, as well as fashion, queer, trans and drag queen elements to question gender technologies, notions of identity, sexuality, placement and displacement.

She is currently developing the project TRAVESTI BIOLÓGICA and has presented her work in venues and festivals including the van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Kampnagel in Hamburg, Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, Les Urbaines in Lausanne, 31st Biennial of São Paulo.
