Geb. Curitiba, Brazil, 1981

Giorgia has developed her work by blurring the limits between contemporary live art and burlesque performance. This means she walks in between the fields of arts (producing performances, video, photos, urban interference) as well as a more underground scene (in parties, music concerts and non artistic events).
She has a Masters in Performing Arts (Federal University of Bahia, Brazil). In her studies, she has worked on developing the concept of “burla”, a Latin word extracted from the frame of the burlesque genre (the substantive burla generates the adjective burlesque). Burla presents itself as a strategy for the creation of the body which wants to heal from its scars, some of which are gender related, as well as those deriving from colonialism and stereotyping, giving visibility to powers and characteristics prevented from developing within the discourses of colonial and rationalist tradition.
