Dancer / Producer / Educator
GABRI’S MISSION IS TO TRANSFORM THE UNDERSTANDING OF HUMANITY THROUGH THE ARTS.
Born and raised in the Caribbean island nation of Curaçao, Gabri is a member of a crossroads culture, and her work expresses the politics and poetics of interchanging races, rhythms, and histories.
Multi-disciplinary and wide-ranging in form, Gabri’s art-making spans film, choreography, performance, curation, writing, and more.
Her subject matter helps determine her approach. When the eloquence and expressive power of dance started to feel limited, she turned to film. Now when she choreographs, she finds herself looking through a more dramaturgical lens. Writing, research and taking part as performer can all influence the medium or direction of a work.
