Benedetta Reuter

Benedetta Reuter completed her dance studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen in 1995 and has ever since worked internationally as a freelance dancer, performer and choreographer. Her body of work explores relationships and interactions between dance and the other arts. Often she worked with musicians from the fields of free improvisation, new music and jazz and explores the relationship between sound and body. As a result of intensive practice in improvisation there emerged several interdisciplinary dance and performance projects, such as “The Fold Dance Project” or “Electric Tire-Land” in collaboration with ASEDEVA and the Goethe Institute in Daressalam, Tanzania.
