Joe Landini

Joe Landini is a San Francisco-based choreographer/curator and is the co-director of Dog & Pony. He completed his BA in Choreography from UC Irvine and his MA in Choreography from the Laban Center (London). He has presented his work at Resolution! Festival (London), International Contemporary Dance Festival (Mexico City), the San Francisco International Arts Festival, as well as festivals in Sacramento, Laguna Beach, Monterey, Santa Cruz and Marin. Locally, he has presented his work at the ODC Theater, Z Space, Dance Mission and the Cowell Theater. In 2007, Landini founded a performance gallery in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood called SAFEhouse Arts (Saving Art From Extinction), where is directs RAW (resident artists workshop) and SPF (summer performance festival). He also directed the West Wave Dance Festival from 2014-2017. In 2012, he received the GOLDIE Award from the SF Bay Guardian for achievement in dance and in 2017, he celebrated his 25th Anniversary of making dances in San Francisco, which included commissions from Nina Haft, Ronja Ver, Amy Lewis and Alma Esperanza Cunningham. Landini’s performance installations are strongly rooted in performativity, deconstruction and phenomenology. His work uses dance as a foundation and integrates elements of media, popular culture and theatre to create environments that are both entertaining and challenging. Landini's work reflects his belief that art should require active viewership.
