Christoph Winkler’s choreographies cover a broad spectrum of formats and range from the personal to the political in theme. Winkler was born in Torgau in the former GDR. He initially trained in weight-lifting, Judo, fight sports and breakdance before studying dance at the Staatlichen Ballettschule Berlin. He went on to study choreography at the University of Performing Arts “Ernst Buch” and later founded Klangkrieg Produktionen, a platform for experimental music. He has been freelancing in Berlin since 1998. In his work, he always manages to find themes that fit perfectly with his art form but, more importantly, also reflect current societal discourse.
