Andrea Hackl is based in Amsterdam 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.
She’s inspired by cross-pollination & interdisciplinary work, by seeing how different fields can nourish and enrich one another. Her understanding of dance & movement got formed, enriched and deepened by conventional techniques as much as somatic and sensorial work.
Hackl cherishes improvisation in collaboration with musicians and has produced work in collaboration with scientists, mostly addressing the subject of human-nature relationships.
Over the last years she has produced various films, presented in Europe, US and Asia and has been exploring the medium of installation and hybrid installation performances.
Hackl has danced with companies like Emanuel Gat Dance, United C, Suzy Blok & Fabian Chyle and toured major venues and festivals world-wide.
