Britta Wirthmüller is a choreographer and dancer. She holds a position for artistic research and teaching at Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz (HZT) Berlin. She studied dance at the Palucca Schule Dresden and holds an MA in “Performance Studies“ from the University of Hamburg. In her work she attends to that which usually remains invisible, e.g. bodies lacking social visibility in the cycle “Antibodies“ with Petra Zanki, the forgotten dances of Jean Weidt (“Physical Encounters”) or the hidden layers of a city’s history in “The Silent Walk“. Current projects are: “Obituary” – an invitation to different generations of dancers to revisit their personal body archive and “The Choreographic Village” – an exploration of choreography as an expanded and participatory practice in rural areas.
