Susanne is an artist and researcher and teacher in the field of contemporary dance. She creates performances internationally as soloist and in collaboration with Bronja Novak (Göteborg), Gabriele Reuter (Berlin), Theater M21 (Göttingen) and others. Her work focuses on the relation between improvisation and choreography, narrations of the ageing body, and contact improvisation in performance. Recently she completed her PhD at Middlesex University London, UK. In her thesis Dancing Age(ing): Rethinking Age(ing) In and Through Improvisation Practice and Performance she discusses the role of improvisation-based dance in developing a critical position towards conceptions of age and aging, and the imperative of youthfulness in dance.
