Katja Heitmann (Hamburg, 1987) graduated BA choreography at Fontys Dance Academy (NL) in 2012. She is fascinated by mankind’s struggle to get grip on existence. By creating systems to control our lives, we end up restricting ourselves. Questioning the definition of reality is the red line in her work. From there Katja is continuously exploring new themes, disciplines and performance-formats.
Katja is inspired by the influence of everydays’ digital technologies on society and with that the arising questions about the identity of our human body. She fuses everydays’ technology, the dancers’ body and the presence of the audience into unconventional performances. Who moves who?
