«Tomorrow's dancer is a chameleon.
He never stops changing or growing.
He never arrives.
Always keep looking.
He opens up to new things and closes himself to nothing.
He is an individualist.
This quote has accompanied me since I moved to Switzerland in 2012.
One of my dance students wrote me these lines as a farewell greeting - for motivation, to calm down and to keep reminding yourself of what you have already experienced.
Since then, the quote has become a kind of philosophy of life.
I enjoy the flexibility that an artist has to show - despite a certain restlessness, I enjoy the constant process of development and movement.
Exploring limits, setting new goals, approaching the day with curiosity and a great deal of individualism.
In my opinion, that makes art authentic.
DANCER / CO - FUNDER OF DOXS / ARTS MANAGER
As a freelance artist and cultural manager and native of Munich, I live in Schaffhausen. My classical ballet training brought me to CINEVOX JUNIOR COMPANY in Switzerland in 2012, where I was able to gain valuable stage experience as part of the Performance Year and the tour to Brazil. Since then, my path has led me through various stages in Germany and Switzerland, until I worked exclusively as a freelance dancer from 2014.
In 2019 he founded his own free, contemporary dance company DOXS.
From 2019 to 2022 I worked at Kultur & Theater der Stadt Schaffhausen for the Stadttheater Schaffhausen, the International Bach Festival Schaffhausen, the municipal cultural promotion and the cultural service of the city of Schaffhausen.
In 2021 I completed my Master for Arts Management studies at the ZHAW Winterthur and completed it with the conceptual master’s thesis on the Schaffhauser Kulturtage festival. Since then I have been working as a project manager on its implementation as a pilot project for the city of Schaffhausen.
From 2023 I will be co-director of the Phönix Theater in Steckborn am Untersee.
As an independent dance company, DOXS is committed to contemporary dance. Professional dancers work locally and project-related on dance pieces that give dance lovers and those interested in culture as well as art novices access to contemporary art. Through physical dance and current topics, the company creates a direct line to its audience. DOXS combines art with entertainment and the joy of performance.
Consisting of the five founding members, work is carried out in flexible constellations. Guest dancers are brought in for certain productions. The focus is on the physical examination and implementation of selected topics. Contemporary dance is viewed and conveyed as a socially acceptable element.
The DOXS repertoire includes short dance pieces, suitable for festivals and short piece platforms, as well as full-length dance pieces for theaters and educational work such as workshops and school performances.
The independent dance company DOXS, based in Schaffhausen, was founded in 2019 by these 5 dancers:
