Dani Brown was born and raised in Rochester, NY, a small city on lake Ontario, with a high rate of violent crime, and a huge gap between rich and poor. Upon completing high school Dani drove across the country to live in the dessert above Albuquerque, NM, there she was an initiator of the sidewalk performance group known notoriously by the local police as SHHHHH! She completed her freshman and sophomore years at Virginia Commonwealth University dept. of Dance and Choreography. Bush was elected and she moved to the mountains of Virginia with a bunch of close friends where she was a guest artist with the Zen Monkey Project. After various, shall we say, cultural exchanges Dani finished her BDa, specialization Dance Maker at the ArtEZ, College of Art in Arnhem, NL (former European Dance Development Centre). Dani co-founded FINGERSIX (creative collective) on a sunny day in 2005, www.fingersix.com. She received the Dance WEB scholarship in 2009. Dani is currently busy producing her first solo project “HOW DO YO IMAGINE THE DEVIL?” and promoting her latest productions, THE INVITATION and IT’S GONNA BLOW (co-directed with f6 partner Marta Navaridas | Kampnagel 2008 + 2010)and BODY SWAP (co-directed with Singaporean choreographer Joavien Ng | Kampnagel 2009). As well Dani is busy teaching (K3- Zentrum für Choreographie, Hamburg), working in Europe as dramaturge (Unicorn (A), Eva Maria Kupfer (CH), Anat Eisenberg (IL)), and performing internationally for Magga Bjarnadottir (IS) + Antje Pfundter (DE) + Jenny Beyer (DE), and the Japanese clothing label COSMIC WONDER.
