keren levi is dance-artist, based in Amsterdam since 1997.
During the past 12 years I have been working in the dance field throughout Europe as a freelance dancer, teacher and choreographer.
The path of my work as a maker has traveled through different themes, styles and aesthetics but has always maintained an intense physical signature. I focus on movement and its organization following a coherent concept or a task, placing the body at the center of my investigation, teasing the boundaries of both performers and public.
My working method, and general artistic standpoint, is to derive material from the performers with whom I work. my process is collaborative; the work is inspired and driven by an exchange with the performers as individuals. Their history, beliefs, perspectives and personal fascinations serve as material to work with and from. I invite the performers to take an active role in the creation process and to own the work, making it theirs as much as mine.
