“Fearlessly exploring the body as a multifaceted medium.”
Florentina Holzinger is an Austrian choreographer and performance artist whose body of work has enriched the international performance scene with award-winning pieces that meld dizzying acrobatics, martial-arts fight scenes, and pop-cultural references.
Holzinger consciously plays with the ever-shifting boundaries between high culture and middlebrow entertainment. From her career’s outset, she has made a point of challenging different modes of female representation on stage and exploring the full physical potential of the human body. Often featuring especially muscular women as performers, the artist’s work is intrinsically linked with the aim of exploring embodiment in relation to identity, and the development of practices to support a physical life in action.
