Bio: Florentina Holzinger
Born in 1986 in Austria, Florentina Holzinger studied choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) at Amsterdam University of the Arts. Her solo graduation work Silk was awarded the Prix Jardin d’Europe at the lmPulsTanz Festival 2012.
Her collaboration with Vincent Riebeek resulted in the pieces Kein Applaus für Scheisse, Spirit, Wellness and Schönheitsabend. Holzinger’s solo work Agon and Recovery present her recovery from a traumatic stage accident and explore different modes of female representation and physicality. As a continuation, she developed training programs for dancers, proposing training for a fight as training for life as an artist.
She is currently artist in residence at the International Choreographic Arts Center ICK Amsterdam where she is also producing her ballet Apollon Musagète that intends to be an all-female contemporary adaption of Balanchine's neoclassical ballet quartet. Florentina, together with Meg Stuart were mentors for the DanceWeb scholarship at the Impulstanz, Vienna in 2018.
Kristallmatrixen - Malin Kent & Indra Linderoth
We are formgivers, craftspeople, maintainers and cleaners and we always come in groups. We believe that simplicity creates stereotypes and limitations. We believe that this simplicity also shapes our common spaces. We want to broaden the horizon for what behaviour and which bodies takes space in a room and we do this by not simplifying. We are are not afraid of being contradictory, instead we embrace ambiguity. We want rooms that changes depending on what you bring to it rather than fixing you to the expected. Nothing we do is stylish and clean. In our rooms you can always wear dirty trousers.
