Viviann is a dancer and choreographer for contemporary belly dance.
Her movement research focuses on the body images in belly dance with an open, performative and post-colonial focus. Her contemporary approach dances with the dichotomy of artificial and
traditional, of self-determination and control.
In her artistic work she is looking for ways to create spaces in which the dance is publicly reflected and the belly dance can be released from the state of comparability. With unconventional
performances and costumes, she wants to redirect the external as well as the internal view of the belly dancers’ body and thus create a new form of aesthetics. This redirection can have a
reciprocal effect on the expression of movement. It is therefore not only about changing the perception, but the state.
