BIOGRAPHY

Andrea Hackl is based in Austria and the Netherlands and works as choreographer, dancer and teacher as well as video artist. Her work cherishes the power and poetry of dance & its physicality & is, most of all, a celebration of life.

As dancer, she has danced with companies/choreographers like Jasper van Luijk | KORZO Productions, Cascade Dance Theater, Emanuel Gat Dance, United C, Suzy Blok & Fabian Chyle and toured major venues and festivals world-wide.

As much as she cherishes dance and believes in its power, she’s inspired by cross-pollination & interdisciplinary work, by seeing how different fields can nourish and enrich one another. Over the last years, working with the video, she has produced various films and has been exploring the medium of installation and hybrid installation performances.
Andrea cherishes improvisation in collaboration with musicians and has equally produced work in collaboration with scientists, mostly addressing the subject of human-nature relationships.
Her performative as well as media / visual work has been presented in Europe, US & Asia.
