ORGANISATION & PARTNERS

WE LIVE HERE 2018 is curated by Nicole Beutler and BAU Platform for Dance and Performance. WE LIVE HERE was first initiated in 2011 by Nicole Beutler, Marijke Hoogenboom and Andrea Božic ́ in order to create space and time to think together and refuel.

NICOLE BEUTLER PROJECTS is the company behind theatre maker, choreographer and curator Nicole Beutler. Beutler (Munich, 1969) studied at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam, where she graduated in 1997. Her work is situated on the threshold of dance, performance and visual arts. With minimal means and a subtle sense of humor, she addresses deeply human and philosophical matters. With a distinctly musical approach, Nicole Beutler composes movement, text, image and meaning into a unifying Gesamtkunstwerk, exploring the expressive power of movement and choreography within the context of theatre and performance. She works from the conviction that all fixed categorizations should be destabilized in order to create space and conditions for new encounters and perspectives.This motivation leads to a diverse body of work within different theatre disciplines, as wel as the curation and organisation of conferences and festivals. Nicole Beutler has been awarded the Gieskes-Strijbis Podiumprijs 2018 for quality and diversity in performing arts.
