Interview / Portrait

Isabelle Schad

Isabelle Schad

Dancer and choreographer Isabelle Schad studied classical dance in Stuttgart from 1981 to 1990 and worked with many choreographers until she started developing her own projects from 1999 on. Her research focuses on the body and its materiality, the relationship between body, choreography, and (re)presentation, community building as well as political involvement. Her projects work at the interface of dance, performance and visual arts and are presented on international festivals like Internationale Tanzwoche Wien, Tanz im August, International Arts Festival Beijing, ImPulsTanz Festival, and others. Moreover she had several collaborations with Goethe Institutes and is frequently invited to the German Dance Platform. She has co-founded several projects/ groups that use different working methods and research strategies to examine the possibilities of collaboration. She founded the project “Good Work” in 2003 with Bruno Pocheron and Ben Anderson, and she is part of the project Practicable, with which she realised the group works “Glazba” and “Muzik” in 2010 and 2011. Schad is co-director of the working space Wiesenburg-Halle in Berlin and since 2013 is also a Zen Shiatsu Practitioner. Furthermore, since 2006 she has been in close and continuous cooperation with Laurent Goldring, creating such early pieces as “Unturtled” (2008) and “DER BAU” (2012/13). Works they have shown at HAU Hebbel am Ufer include: “Collective Jumps” (2014), “On Visibility and Amplifications” (2015), a retrospective of Isabelle Schad and “Fugen” (2015).
