Katja Heitmann (1987, DE) operates on the intersection of dance and visual arts, performance and installation. In her choreographic work she investigates what moves humans in the current age. In 2016 Katja won the Dutch Dance Festival Award (Prijs van de Nederlandse Dansdagen). Katja Heitmann’s choreographic work comprises explicit estheticism, sharply contrasted by human fallibility. Her radically minimalist and minutely designed visual language confronts viewers with a frantic flood of insights. This distinct, perceptible tension returns in all her work.
With her team Katja creates performance-installations and movement-exhibitions. Always departing from the questions ‘Who (or what) moves humans?’ we work in varied places from public spaces to theatres and musea.
