Dedicated to arts education, performance, and social justice, Amelia’s performing and teaching combines technical prowess and emotional sensitivity. A Peruvian artist and educator, she is a graduate from the Juilliard School’s Dance Division and the Tamalpa Institute’s leadership training. She has worked collaboratively with artists and institutions in Berlin, Croatia, Argentina, throughout Peru and the United States. In 2013, Amelia founded Río Danza Comunitaria in Perú, recognized as an organization that protects water rights through community performance and arts education. Amelia regularly performs and teaches in the United States and Peru.
Under the framework, "sin adjetivos," Amelia references the teachings of Victoria Santa Cruz (1922-2014,) dance and theater pioneer from Peru. Since their meeting, her personal inquiry shifted to seek art-making without artifice and for a purpose. Sin Adjetivos performances share a scoring practice grounded in movement, autobiographical narrative and the Tamalpa Life/Art process.
