ABOUT ME

zinnia pro selfie fangfrisch.png

I graduated from Hamburg Ballet School in 2014, was engaged as an ensemble dancer at Theater Krefeld (2014-2016) and then at Musikalische Komödie Oper Leipzig (2016-2018). Since 2018 I am active as a freelance dancer, performer and circus artist in Berlin and performed dance, performance art and contemporary circus at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Pfefferberg Theater, Lurupina Circus Festival and other venues small and large. I completed my distance learning degree in "Sustainability and Development" at Arizona State University in 2019. Since 2020, I have been occupied with the challenge of creating interactive physical performances, specifically in the form of the interactive dance solo “Machine (un)learning”. In 2022, three of my projects are funded by the German Federal Commission for Culture Programme #takeheart: 404, an interdisciplinary digital performance; faultier /sloth, a capitalism-critical circus show; and südländische gäste / betweenness, a solo research on multiethnic identity and discrimination. Besides working as a performer, I am also producing and managing my own work, and have worked for NGOs in Germany and Europe, as well as in production assistance for LARAS Collective and KHeil Dance in Berlin.
