CREATURES OF THE WILD
sita will guide the participants through an improvisations technique, which sita uses to give the dancers an understanding of the connection between mind and body. it is a game of images, situations, feelings, rhythms, and embodying those. her work is built on fast rhythmical changes of qualities, emotions and images.
the movement language is expressive, fluent, sensual and grounded. ostheimer’s collaboration with many choreographers, such as hofesh shechter and itzik galili, has influenced her approach to movement, work and life. the unique animalistic movement language that arises from the human instinct is her particular and peculiar signature in dance.
studied at the dr. hoch’s konservatorium and the university of music and performance arts in frankfurt am main. after that she joined ms schrittmacher in oldenburg, worked with galili dance (itzik galili), and then continued her career in amsterdam with krisztina de chatel. in june 2008, she joined the hofesh shechter company in london.
as a choreographer she created “noble thinking” (2011), “accompany” (2012) and “dissimilar foxes” (2014) for shechter’s “in good company”. as a freelance choreographer, she created “metanoia” (sweden), “balter” (corfu), “mangata” (singapore) and, in addition, works on restaging hofesh shechter’s works at companies, such as edge ’13, ndt i, staatstheater kassel, ballet basel, staatsballet berlin, aterballetto, staatstheater darmstadt and wiesbaden.
she teaches classes and workshops regularly at various schools, universities and companies, such as sead, salzburg; nod, torino; one small step festival, corfu; b12, berlin; and zzt, koln.
