Juli makes dances because she loves dancing and movement between bodies. In fact, it is the dance between them that she is mostly interested in. What at all is recognized as a human body and how dance can make us see and feel anew is the key question, isn’t it?

Juli studied philosophy and dance in Berlin and choreography in Stockholm. Since 2012, she works as a freelance choreographer. In 2012, she received a one-year residency at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm in which she investigated the format of a concert and rhythm as a medium for new relationships between bodies. Since 2019, Juli is enrolled as a doctoral student at Uniarts Helsinki where she experiments with disorientation, focusing on time and rhythms of movement once again. “Konturen” (2020) and “Yes Contours Time Disorientation xt”(2021) have put some different temporal structures into practice. “All late, all babe” will conclude the research in 2024.

Next to her choreographic work, Juli is writing and has been teaching workshops and seminars in international initiatives and universities in the past years. She is involved various collaborative work environments in order to learn from others. “I wanted to research well sunk. I knew that she could do it perfectly. She is experienced, she knows when the lines of straight forwardness announce their arrival and then she makes a cute fall to the side and continues her way.” (Writing practice, 24.8.2022)
