Collaborations

Next to contemporary dance projects and pieces set on stage, my experiences as performer include participations in video and sound pieces, as well as collaborations with visual artists, performing in the context of galleries and museums. I have been working in productions for a young public, and in frames that involved close contact and interaction with the audience. I am curious to let my body and mind explore new material and conceptual propositions, and enjoy the encounter of my own physical and personal constitution with diverse frames.

CORYTHM, a physical dialogue between two performers using coal as a drawing material, is the second project in which I performed for visual artist Nicole Wendel. Her work includes drawing and performance, or combines both of them – revealing lines and shapes as traces of the body’s movements.

Eine Geschichte der Welt 4_Foto Élise Scheider

Eine Geschichte der Welt by Lea Martini and Dennis Deter is a fantastic journey that turns the theatre upside down, uncovering entire universes in the in the folds of a curtain, and dancing molecules in the spotlights. As part of EXPLORE DANCE, this piece for young audiences aged 6+, was produced by fabrik Potsdam and presented at Kampnagel Hamburg and hochX Munich in spring 2019.

Snails by Grazyna Roguski is a fluid sculpture where the boundaries between sculpture and performance dissolve. Snails are hermaphrodites and can switch randomly between genders, enabling a form of self-redetermination. For Grazynas work, Josephine Findeisen and myself wore a multi-layered garment limiting our movements and pushing us into mutual dependency. The shape formed by this garment suggests an autonomous ‘new’ body. Snails was performed in Hamburger Bahnhof, Kunstverein Leipzig and The Museum / Leipzig.

Roni Katz’ conversational performance Between Us is a format that aims to tackle the relations of what is talked about: how, where, and with whom. By using only questions to dialogue, the performance relentlessly claims space for multiplicities and brings to the surface the value of a perpetual, nearly obsessive conversation with no resolution. Both, in 2017 and 2018 ( Dock11Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst ), I participated as a performer in this durational format, circling with and without the participation of the audience around differently delicate topics such as privilege or masturbation.

Ex-peau-sition is a sensory and tactile work that invites the visitor to receive a choreography performed on their body. The tactile compositions follow anatomical pathways and interact with factors of time and space.
In the frame of an exhibition of Constantin Brancusis sculptures at BOZAR / Brussels, choreographer Madalina Dan and I invited the viewers to turn into subjects and the contemplative mode to turn to an experiential one. The touch choreographies were accompanied by Joëlle Serret’s sound compositions.

how surprising that you are you

The video installation how surprising that you are you by the artist duo titre provisoire (Cathleen Schuster and Marcel Dickhage) is a role play of some psychological instances of love, in which Desire, Jouissance and the Unconscious, next to others, live and get together in flats of their close friends. The protagonists find their environment to be disconcerting, causing certain behaviors. Can love become a form of personal resistance for them, to counter a predominant reactionary climate suspicious of everything unknown? The video was shot in January 2018 and presented in the exhibition Lieben at Taxispalais Kunsthalle Tirol.
