Benjamin Richter Benjamin Richter (DE) is a transdisciplinary artist working from a base of juggling and dance since 1991. He works with the relationship between body, object and space in the fields of contemporary circus, sculpture and performance art. The basis and starting point of all of his work is his object-oriented practice "TLO, The Language of Objects“ with which he combines improvisation strategies and somatic practices in teaching, choreography and performance. In addition to his own performance works and choreography/coaching for other companies, e.g. Rapid Eye (DK), Andrea Salustri (ITA) and Hippana/Maleta (D/IRL), he has performed all over the world with companies such as Gandini Juggling and Cirkus Cirkör. Since 2016 he has been collaborating with Cox Ahlers and Jenny Patschovsky on site-specific processes and performances for the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation. Benjamin has taught at the circus department at SKH, Stockholm at BA, MA and PHD levels since 2003. He also runs the independent course “Artistic Development in Circus Disciplines”. Benjamin loves juggling and moving and believes the synthesis of the two art forms to be a unique abstract-expressive language positioned between dance and the visual arts.

Jean-Christophe Paré (FR) in 1990  became director of the National Centre of Contemporary Dance in Angers and then inspector of dance for the French Ministry of Culture, even later then director of the National Dance School in Marseille. He introduced new curricula at universities and high schools including choreographic analysis and coaching. He has been researching dance theory for a long time and is interested in how the reading of a work can be approached. As a dancer, choreographer, and educator, he saw the need to analyze and name what was happening in creative work. He managed to reorient himself by studying semiotics, using the structuralist method, and a philosophy focused on the phenomenology of perception.

Sue Adrienne Schroeder (USA)  has created more than 110 original dance works for theatres, museums, green spaces, architectural works, and water environments. Schroeder focuses on the creative process, movement research & exploration. She integrates prominent voices in dance, music, spoken word, visual arts and design, using dance to catalyst social change. She is an Arts Activist, Mentor and Founding Artistic Director of Core Dance.

The Residency 2022 will be held under the guidance of Sue Schroeder (USA), Benjamin Richter (DE) and Jean-Christophe Paré (FR)
