Mission and Vision

by Elisa Siegmund / February 24, 2020 / in About / 0 comments

I believe in the unifying power of movement.

For this I use ice as medium, ice skates as tool, body as instrument, dance art as framework and life as inspiration.

My goal is to bring contemporary dance on the medium of ice into gliding motion and to illuminate it from different perspectives. For this purpose, I strive for an exchange and cooperation with artists from various fields.

Motivated and driven by the hidden, slumbering potential of the medium, I dedicate myself especially to the exploration of performative possibilities of ice as a stage floor for contemporary dance.

With my research, creation and performance work, I pursue the vision and mission of developing a new movement-dance language as well as a cross-disciplinary form of performance on the smooth medium and bringing it into visibility.

I aim to make this newly emerging, experimental form of expression accessible for the culturally interested public and to anchor it in the art and cultural world.
