Q21 Backstage: in April we present insert – Tanz und Performance GmbH, whose office has been part of Q21/MQ since 2011. The choreographer and performer Doris Uhlich has been developing her own projects since 2006 and questions common formats and body images in her productions.

In her projects, Doris Uhlich (*1977 in Upper Austria) challenges conventional formats and body images: She works with people with varying backgrounds and physical inscriptions, among others, opening the dance stage for people with physical disabilities, demonstrating the potentials of nakedness beyond eroticism and provocation, investigating the relationship between human being and machine at different levels, or exploring the future of the human body in the age of its surgical and genetic perfection. The projects are characterized by different formats, on stages, in museums and at specific locations. Doris Uhlich understands the body as a "travelling body archive"; for her, the skin is a permeable texture. Events of a political, social, economic and cultural nature inscribe themselves. the body is in the world, the world is in the body.
