Flora Wiegmann aims to recontextualize dance and grant it new possibilities for communication, and to question the limitations inherent in time-based performance. A relocation of dance from the theatrical stage to zones of different institutions as well as the outside world, gives rise to a rich and complex territory for discourse that links historical and contemporary positions of both dance and art simultaneously. Each project begins with a specific conceptual framework out of which the work unfolds. Historical inquiry is often a part of the process, whether it is regarding the specific site of performance or a current personal investigation. Wiegmann often collaborates with visual artists; these pairings of expertise have uncovered parallels between interests and influence, exposing interconnectedness between artistic practices of all categories. At the same time, she continues to create solo works that result in her own distinct findings.
