Lotte Mueller researches at the intersection of contemporary circus and contemporary dance. With her pieces, she creates spaces for dealing with socially relevant themes and psychological behaviour patterns, whereby the humour of the tragic builds a bridge to the audience. Her works have been invited to international festivals such as At.tension and have received several international awards, such as at the Tanzhaus Zurich or at ‘Das beste Deutsche Tanzsolo’ of the euro-scene Leipzig. Her works and collaborations have been shown at HAU Berlin, Prinzregententheater Munich and HELLERAU – European Centre for the Arts. In addition to her artistic work, Lotte Mueller is coordinator of the Federal Association of Contemporary Circus. With the M.A. Choreography as a scholarship holder of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes she specialized in postgraduate studies in circus dramaturgy in Chalons-en-Champagne. Before that she completed her training in contemporary dance and a specialisation in acrobatics and equilibristics in Toulouse.
