Amanda Prince-Lubawy is new to working at CLARA and is thrilled to be running the Auditorium. Amanda trained in classical ballet, modern, and postmodern dance with Pamela Hayes, Loretta Livingston, Donald McKayle, and Yvonne Rainer. She received her BFA in Dance – Performance from UC Irvine and her MA in Dance Theatre: The Body in Performance from LABAN.
Amanda has been a resident performer at art institutions such as Tate Modern, Hayward Gallery, White Cube, and Haus der Kunst. She worked closely with artists Xavier Le Roy and Mårten Spångberg; Kira O’Reilly, Eddie Peake, Yvonne Rainer, and Tino Sehgal. She was uniquely invited as an American to speak on Remembering British New Dance: New Dance and the Visual Arts by British choreographer, Jonathan Burrows, and art historian Ramsay Burt. She has presented her own work in the UK, USA, and Germany, including her most recent work I heart Bruce Nauman at Arts Benicia in 2019 as a dance film; and, in June 2021 at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London, as a dance score for Christopher Matthews’ My Body’s An Exhibition. Now at CLARA, Amanda treasures an event space that supports various groups and performances in the heart of Sacramento, CA.
