Vera Sofia Mota (1982) is a Portuguese artist based in Berlin since 2011. She studied choreography, performance, philosophy and yoga in Portugal, Holland, Germany and India and has been working in these areas. She emphasizes the work with Portuguese choreographer João Fiadeiro and RE.AL in Lisbon during 2006-10, where she did her first creations, and the long-term collaboration with Dutch dramaturge Fransien van der Putt since 2010 in different projects and contexts. Her research project at the MA at ArtEZ in Holland (2014-16) was entitled 'Multiplicity in Practice: Emergent Compositions' - a study of how 'many things' can/do relate ecologically in art and life and how this plurality of relationships can be practiced ethically, politically and artistically. At the invitation of LIMA Amsterdam and in collaboration with Fransien van der Putt, Vera has been researching the work of visual, performance and video pioneer artist, Nan Hoover (New York, 1931 - Berlin, 2008) since 2015.
