Silke Grabinger got in touch with breakdance in 1997. She performed in the Cirque du Soleil / The Beatles Show LOVE in Las Vegas, solo and as an aerial artist, and has worked with choreographers Dave St.Pierre, Margie Gillis, and Daniel Ezralow. Her first solo performance is entitled [SLIK], in cooperation with Pilottanzt. [SLIK] was the winner of the Linz09 award (culture capital city of Europe) and toured Europe and Africa. She was granted the scholarship for music and performing arts and received the Austrian design state award. She created the character ANIMA in playGuldaplay of the honor of Friedrich Gulda, with Paul Gulda, Martha Agerich a. o. in the Wiener Konzerthaus. Silke Grabinger developed a “movement notation for musicians” for the performance Moving Architecture with composer Bernhard Lang which is based on the architecture of the Austrian Cultural Forum NYC. In her current work, she volunteers to be an experimental subject in the time frame of 10 minutes each for different international choreographers: Benoit Lachambre, Anne Juren, Oleg Soulimenko, Philippe/Superamas, Hubert Lepka, and comedian Dirk Stermann.

Pachamama: Mother World
Choreographer: Anabella Lenzu
Dancer: Lauren Ohmer
Pachamama: Mother World looks at the ritualistic similarities between two geographically different cultures, Native Americans and South American Natives. The division line between Ritual and Performance blurs, becoming both an anthropological study and a creation of Dance Theater.

Originally from Argentina, Anabella Lenzu is a dancer, choreographer, and teacher with over 20 years of experience working in Argentina, Chile, Italy, and the USA. She conducts classes at Peridance Center, Wagner College, and Lehman College. Lenzu is also a published author for various dance and arts magazines, and plans to debut her first book in March 2013, entitled Unveiling Motion and Emotion. The book contains writings in Spanish and English on the importance of dance, community, choreography, and dance pedagogy.
