Antonia Baehr is a choreographer and performer. Her work is interdisciplinary and characterised by a non-disciplinary approach. She works with various partners, often in form of a kind of role-playing: each person is alternately director/ author and performer/ guest for the other. In 1994, she co-founded the Berlin-based performance group “ex machinis“. In 1996, she received her diploma in Film- and Media Arts under Valie Export from the University of Arts Berlin and was awarded a DAAD-grant and a Merit Scholarship for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. There she completed her MA in Performance under Lin Hixson.
In 2000, she moved back to Berlin, where she lives and works. From 2006 to 2008, Antonia Baehr was artiste associée der Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers in France and in 2008, published her book “Rire / Laugh / Lachen“. Antonia Baehr has worked e.g. with Lindy Annis, Gaetan Bulourde, Valérie Castan, Antonija Livingstone, Eszter Salamon, Tamar Shelef and William Wheeler. She is moreover the producer of horse whisperer and dancer Werner Hirsch, musician and choreographer Henri Fleur, as well as of composer Henry Wilt.
