 artist-statement collaborations about

michela flzi (she/her) is an independent artist living in Berlin. In 2016 she received a BA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, and in 2021 an MA in Solo Dance Authorship at the Hzt, Berlin. Her ongoing artistic research revolves around questions of human and non-human agency and ecological thinking in the context of the performing arts.
She studies permaculture at the Moulin Scalagrand, a self-sustainable farm in the south of France and brings her relationship to the land into her artistic work. Her performances are site-specifc and hold the middle ground between rituals, storytelling, herbalism and dance.
She is an independent dance writer and is part of STREAM, a platform for texts motivated by Live art and part of Tanzfabrik, Berlin.
Since 2021 she is part of the collective WILD ACCESS, and she regularly collaborates with Berlin based dancers and choreographers such as Alice Chauchat, Niels Weijer, Daniel Conant, Beatrix Joyce, Dorota Michalak and more.
