Snježana Premuš

Snježana Premuš (Slovenia) graduated from London Contemporary Dance School in 1998. Her curious, questioning mind led her to various international choreographic and improvisation projects in Glasgow, Paris, Vienna, Berlin and Athens, where she gained invaluable experience in understanding the body, poetic image, sharing practices and developed her own approach to either comical, fantastical or metaphysical imagery. In 2012, she studied somatics at Moveus Berlin and obtained a certificate in EAY. Since then, the somatic approach to movement has deeply marked her artistic development. She has been unfolding somatic and dance research work in the project Physical Manifestations, in which attunement is practised by spectators and artists. She establishes intriguing environments not only for re-sensitizing the body but also questioning how to be together. In 2017, she received the Ksenija Hribar Award for an outstanding choreographer for her work in the somatic-dance approach.
