ARTIST BIO

Johanna Nielson uses amongst many other attributions also performer, choreographer and pedagogue. She lives and works in Vienna. Besides dancing since the age of 4, beeing surrounded by dance- and performance art ever since, she also studied contemporary dance and dance pedagogy in Linz. Her practice involves dance, real time creation and sound with a focus on phenomena of the sensual and the sensable. Johanna creates fluid performative formats and spaces, in which different disciplines encounter and audience-performer relationships are challenged. In collaboration with Agnes Schneidewind she worked on a series of performative experiments dealing with mechanisms of translation. They dive into processes and create performances that play post-esoterically with the potential of body practices and perceptions. (Rumpuls, performance series AH I SEE). On the interaction of (experimental) music and dance she investigates with the artists* Marina Poleukhina, Magdalena Chowaniec, Stefan Voglsinger, Jakob Schauer, Patric Redl or the Phoenix Baroque Austria Ensemble. Among others she performed with and for Sara Lanner, Inge Kaindlsdorfer/lux flux, Theresa Luise Gindlstrasser, Claire Lefèvre, Florentina Holzinger, Evandro Pedroni, Arne Mannott, Alexander Chernyshkov/Error Theater and Oleg Soulimenko. She received the DanceWEB scholarship of ImpulsTanz in 2017. For the last six years she has been a board member of Im_flieger - Artists Association. Johanna works for Wiener Frauenhäuser.
