The Art of Discomfort

A spotlight on Florentina Holzinger, Berlin-based choreographer and performance artist who uses dance to comment to investigate the limits and physicality of the female body.

History repeats itself and repressive tendencies come and go in waves, exposing topics related to gender inequalities in modern societal structures.  The Berlin-based choreographer, performance artist, and dancer, Florentina Holzinger, uses dance to comment on these topics and investigate the limits and physicality of the female body, as well as more general themes such as female representation. Her fearless exploration of taboo subjects and her willingness to take physical risks have earned her a reputation as one of the most daring and innovative artists performing today.
