Lena Reyle, Johanna Seiler

The Core – die Kunst, eine Sprache zu sprechen

NAH DRAN | ada Studio in den Uferstudios

Production Details / Press Releases

Two artforms, one language – one body and one voice meet in effortless communication: The duo’s skillfully crafted improvisations arise solely from the inspiration of the moment. “Have we been witnessing a body sing and a voice dance? No, somehow both were singing, both dancing, in concert.”

Lena Reyle is a trained dancer, choreographer and dance teacher for artistic dance. After her training at the Ronecker Ballet School in Stuttgart, focusing on classical dance according to the Waganowa method and modern dance, she studied the Cunningham technique at the Merce Cunningham Dance Studio in New York. Since 2015, she has been living in Berlin, where she participated in advanced training in dance and choreographic knowledge. Previously, she worked at K3 I Center for Choreography in Hamburg as a production assistant and in the field of mediation. As a dance teacher, choreographer and dancer she works in Stuttgart, Hamburg, Berlin and Paris.

Johanna Seiler is a Berlin based vocal improvisational artist, composer & concert pianist. As a composer she for example writes commissioned works for choirs, vocal groups, theater & dance companies. As a coach for vocal improvisation she teaches prolifically all over Europe – at conventions, festivals, medical institutions, universities, conservatories, theaters, dance companies and others. In her circle song events she leads spontaneous choral improvisations with up to 1500 singers and “non-singers”. As a performance artist she appears on stage with fully improvised shows – with her all-vocal ensembles as well as in collaboration with instrumentalists and dancers.
