Isabelle Schad

The dancer and choreographer Isabelle Schad studied classical dance in Stuttgart and worked with a number of choreographers until starting her own projects in 1999. Her work focuses on the body and its materiality, the relationship between body, choreography and (re)presentation, community building and political involvement. Her projects work at the interface of dance, performance, and visual arts and are presented on international festivals like Internationale Tanzwoche Wien, Tanz im August, International Arts Festival Beijing, Impulstanzfestival, and others. Moreover she had several collaborations with Goethe Institutes and is frequently invited to German Dance Platforms. In 2003 she founded the international artists’ network and project “Good Work” with Bruno Pocheron and Ben Anderson, and she is part of the project “Practicable”, with which she realised the group pieces “Glazba” and “Musik” in 2010 and 2011. Schad is co-director of the working space Wiesenburg-Halle in Berlin and since 2013 is also a Zen Shiatsu Practitioner. In addition, she has worked closely and continuously with Laurent Goldring. In 2015 they presented the retrospective “On Visibility and Amplifications” at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, including their works “An Un-Folding Process”, “Der Bau”, “Unturtled #1 & #4” and “Collective Jumps”, which was premiered in 2014 at HAU. In autumn 2015 she was reinvited with “Fugen” and in 2016 with “Pieces and Elements”. In 2017 “Turning Solo” premiered at HAU and was shown in combination with “Double Portrait”.
