Donna Miranda is a choreographer living and working in the Philippines. Miranda relocates choreography from the site of the individual body to that of collective political actions. She works as a freelance consultant for international development organizations concerning gender justice, public health and disaster risk reduction. She also does volunteer work for SAKA, an alliance of artists supporting genuine agrarian reform in the Philippines, and the Federation of Agricultural Workers.
The Bungkalan LAND (Learning And Demonstration) Project is a long-term engagement initiated by Sama-samang Artista Para sa Kilusang Agraryo (Artist Alliance for Genuine Agrarian Reform) with peasant mass organizations to cultivate a communal space for producing a steady supply of safe, nutritious, and affordable food. It locates the artist’s pursuit of new forms in the peasant’s pursuit of a new freedom through the assertion of both land sovereignty and food sovereignty.
