Patricia Woltmann is a choreographer, dancer and a performance artist. Working with dance-based performance and video, Patty explores concepts related to the transformative potential of the body – presence in relation to absence and memory. In her performances she creates space for collective, embodied experiences. She holds an M.A. in Dance Studies and a Postgraduate Diploma from Trinity Laban, London. Prior to this she studied contemporary dance at Erika Klütz School, Hamburg. Her performance – and video works have been presented in several countries, e.g. England, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Sweden, Greece, Mexico and Brazil.
Recently Patricia has been a recipient of the Solo-Dis-Tanz Stipend by BKM, Neustart Kultur (2022). In 2022 she was artist-in-residence at AADK Spain, where she researched and presented on the theme of touch, presence and absence (“closer”, “for record”). In 2020 she produced two films, “untitled” commissioned by Bode Museum Berlin, and “dislocated angle”, developed during her residency with Kinitiras/Athens and Goethe Institut Athens. Commissions include Museo del Chopo/ Mexico City and KW Institute of Contemporary Art/ Berlin. Her group work “To: my future body” (2019) was presented at KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin. Since 2017 she is a collaborator of lab.Bode, Bode Museum Berlin. Her performance “drive” (2014) was presented at Museo de Chopo, Mexico City.
