    SUSANNE KIRCHNER (Germany) focusses on the development of contemplative body  
    training and over the years has held lecturerships at the Academy of Art  
    Berlin in body sensitizing training as well as for 'Dance Sculpture", dance  
    sculpture / behaviour and space at the Academy of Art Nunberg and Leipzig  
    and the Academy of Art Weibensee and Stuttgart.  A versatile stage performer  
    in Germany and abroad, she has been an independent chorographer and director  
    since 1996. 

    "Dance Sculpture" is the result of the research for a body expression which  
    uses the human body without the help of other requisites, which dates back  
    to the archaic worlds but yet remains current due to the extreme handling of  
    time. Different states of being are reduced to a concentration on gestures  
    and balance, and this unfolds into moved and abstract body forms. Absolute  
    silence focusses the observation of the audience on themselves and is then  
    transmitted to the environment.
