Artist presentation by Nicole Beutler

Choreographer, performer and curator Nicole Beutler based in Amsterdam, is the first  guest in Weld´s evenings "This is what I do" in which choreographers and artists share their artistic practises and their creative work.

Nicole Beutler (Munich, 1969) is a choreographer, curator and performer. She has been living and working in Amsterdam since 1993. She studied Fine Arts at Münster and München arts academies, German Literature at the University of Münster and Dance and Choreography at the SNDO at the Theatre School, Amsterdam. Her work is situated on the threshold of dance, performance and visual arts. She seeks to precisely articulate sense and experience, through performances, installations and books. Her performances are composed musically, and suffused with subtle humour. They are characterised by minimal stage sets and a focus on the performer as a human being. In all her work, she examines the function of dance in the context of performance and theatre.

In 2005 Nicole Beutler co-founded LISA, the Amsterdam-based theatre makers‘ collective . She has continued to initiate projects that enable reflection and encounters. From 2008 till 2010, she was Dance and Performance curator at Frascati Theatre in Amsterdam, where ao she co-curated the Something Raw festival 2009 and 2010. She collaborated for many years, in a variety of roles, with choreographer and performer Paz Rojo and has worked on several projects by David Weber-Krebs, Hooman Sharifi and the live art group Private Thoughts in Public Places. Nicole has been a permanent cast member of The Show Must Go On by Jérôme Bel since 1999. She is also an artistic adviser for fellow choreographers, and a guest teacher at the School for New Dance Development and the Mime School, both of which are departments of the Theatre School at the Amsterdam School of the arts (AHK). Nicole is the mother of one child.
