Daria Kaufman is a contemporary dancer and choreographer whose work deconstructs notions of perception, gender, and how the body conveys meaning. Her pieces have been presented throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Portugal, at venues including ODC Theater (SF), the Joe Goode Annex (SF), Escola Superior de Dança (Lisbon), and Atelier Concorde (Lisbon). In 2015, she was nominated for an Isadora Duncan Dance Award (“Izzie”) for Individual Performance for the show In her tower. Her work has been generously supported by the Gulbenkian Foundation, the European Cultural Foundation, and the Zellerbach Family Foundation. She has also been awarded many Artist-in-Residencies throughout the SF Bay Area and Europe, including Shawl-Anderson Dance Center (Berkeley, USA), Devir Capa (Faro, Portugal), and ÇATI Dans (Istanbul, Turkey). Since 2014, she lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.
