Kat Válastur

Kat Válastur is a Berlin based choreographer and performer. She was trained as a dancer at the Hellenic State School of Dance. She continued her dance studies at the Trisha Brown Studios in New York with a Fulbright scholarship. During her MA studies at the Inter-University Center for Dance Berlin she posed the question “What is there left to be danced?” creating the philosophical context in which she developed her work. Fragmentation, diverted architecture, time lapse, entropy, fiction, virtuality are some of the notions that emerge from her dance works, through the creation of a specific force field. Inside that field the bodies move while the condition forces them to produce a special kinetic perception. She also utilizes diagrams, scores drawings and texts that she creates for each work. She participated as a grantee at the Institut für Raumexperimente, a project initiated by Ólafur Elíasson in collaboration with the Berlin University of the Arts. While a grantee at the Institut she started to develop for 2014 a series of new choreographies titled “The marginal sculptures of Newtopia”. Válastur's works have been presented at international venues and festivals. As part of the retrospective "We were better in the Future" in 2017 "Gland" (2014), "Ah! Oh! – A Contemporary Ritual" (2014), "OILinity" (2016) and "lang" (2017) will be shown at HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
