We are honoered to welcome Anjeline de Dios to Berlin for a 2 months stay within the REFLEKT residency programme by Goethe-Institut Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines together with SAVVY Contemporary, TanzFaktur, and Leipzig International Art Programme for artists and cultural practitioners from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. 

The REFLEKT residency programme encourages the artists/curators/art practitioners in residence to expand their research, develop a concept/prototype, build a project, or create an artwork together with the hosting organisations and local communities. Ideally, after completing the residency, the residents would continue their work and present them in their city of origin.

Anjeline de Dios who was born and based in Manila is a chant artist and cultural geographer working in the intersection of sound performance, decolonial humanities, and meditation training. Since 2015, she has participated in collaborative performance works, workshops, and residencies in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Germany, and Indonesia through her practice of improvised chants. Anjeline also publishes research on music, migration, and labor, and is the co-editor of The Elgar Handbook on the Geographies of Creativity (2020). She holds a PhD in Geography from the National University of Singapore (2015).
