Sandra Noeth
(Berlin)

Dr. Sandra Noeth, professor at HZT Berlin, has been active internationally as a curator and dramaturge in both independent and institutional contexts. As Head of Dramaturgy and Research at Tanzquartier Wien (2009-2014), she developed a series of research and presentation projects on concepts and practices of responsibility, religion, integrity and protest in relation to the body. Her curatorial and scientific research focusses especially on ethical and political perspectives toward body-practice and theory (see ‘Violence of Inscriptions’, a project on bodies under structural violence, with A. Zaides, 2016-18, HAU Hebbel am Ufer) and dramaturgy in the body-centred performing arts. She co-edited several books on the topics such as ‘Bodies of Evidence: Ethics, Aesthetics, and Politics of Movement’ (2018, with G. Ertem, Passagen) and the periodical ‘SCORES’ (2010-16, with Tanzquartier Wien). Her PhD (2018) deals with the entangled experience of the border and of collectivity in artistic work from Lebanon and Palestine (‘Resilient Bodies, Residual Effects’, forthcoming with transcript in 2019).
