Jeepneys (Anna Luisa Petrisko) is a Los Angeles-based multimedia artist working primarily in dance, sound, video, and performance. Named after the iconic converted WWII army jeeps of the Philippines, she is of mixed race Filipina and Slovak heritage and her work focuses on the complexities of identity, memory, and language through a postcolonial lens. In her teaching practice, she develops techniques that focus on healing through movement and sound therapy. She is also a yoga and fitness teacher as well as a trained dancer and considers her teaching practice as an extension of her art. Jeepneys' work is a practice of magic and intuition, as well as an exploration of the mind/body connection. Jeepneys is a member of Black Salt Collective, who is currently in residence at SOMArts Gallery in San Francisco presenting Visions Into Infinite Archives, a multimedia exhibition and event series with artwork by over 30 multigenerational artists of color.
