Sandra Man

lives and works in Berlin, Vienna and Obervellach. After finishing her studies in literary criticism and philosophy she started working as an author and choreographer. She writes her texts for room installations and choreographies, they are spoken, sung and read by the audience. She is interested in poetry, language as sound and rhythm, written for voices and dancing bodies. Originating in her sensations and perceptions her poetry circles around the frailty and porosity of bodies, open for transformations in all organic and inorganic directions, from flesh to stone, from cell to planet. The texts are poetic reports of embodiements and at the same time mediations on a world-space that flows through everything. Such a moved and movable space is also the starting point for an understanding of choreography as a space-art, which she is working on together with Moritz Majce.
