sonja was born in germany and studied dance in tilburg and rotterdam. she works as choreographer, dancer and curator. Characteristic of Sonja Augart’s work is its strong individuality, not to be compared with anything. It is always pure, honest and inquiring. Dance language liberated of its narrative meaning is convincing only if imagination is not imposed beforehand, and if awareness of form is not forced but intrinsically persuasive. The viewer is always a part of the performance, is never anonymously passive. The questions “What is choreography?”, “What is theatre?” are just under the skin.
