Greta Gauhe is a german, freelance choreographer and performer based in London. Making work since 2015, her works are eclectic and multidisciplinary, with a distinct focus on political, social or ecological issues. A lot of her current focus is around using the medium of dance as a means of coming together, exploring empathy, touch and connection. Challenging the formal separation between spectator and performers, Greta’s works are seen in both theatres and art institutions. Her works were performed at many festivals in the UK and Europe, including the Resolution Festival, Chisenhale Dance Space, the Emerge Festival, October Gallery, University of the Arts Berlin, Albany Theatre and the Camden Fringe Festival.
Notably, Greta has been involved in various CD projects working with people of all ages and she has taught creative dance classes and workshops for both professional and non-professional dancers.
In the meantime, she performed works by Florence Peake & Eve Stainton, Matthias Sperling, Livia Ritae, Sasha Roubicek, Matta Sakka (Sasha Waltz), Anna Williams, Sonja Rafferty, Gary Lambert, Marie Yagami, Roman Baca and she has been a dancer at the theatre in Würzburg.
After graduating with a MA in Performance from the London Contemporary Dance School she enrolled onto the MFA in Choreography at Trinity Laban to further investigate into her artistic practice.
She is honured to have received the Leverhulme Arts Scholarship during her time at Trinity Laban.
