Deborah and Greta
Artistic Duo


Deborah and Greta form an artistic duo, collaborating across disciplines in dance and visual arts since 2023. Together, they have embarked on numerous projects, spanning from community dance initiatives in Germany, collaborating with students at the FH Kiel, to online audio-recorded performances tailored for individuals living with chronic pain, as well as live outdoor performances. Their collective aim is to craft environmentally conscious works that delve into the intricate relationships between humanity and nature through themes of intimacy, touch, autobiographical memory, and collective reclamation.

Their approach involves active engagement with the public, inviting them to participate in the creation process, thereby granting agency to the participants. Their performances are characterised by their participatory nature, encouraging individuals to become co-creators and shape the unfolding narrative. Central to their methodology are movement inquiries, somatic practices, and object creation, through which they deconstruct conventional boundaries, challenge societal norms, and explore the intersectionality of personal and collective experiences. Exploring their differences in generation, they aim to bridge gaps, foster understanding, and harness the unique perspectives each generation brings, ultimately creating richer, more inclusive artistic expressions that resonate across diverse audiences and cultures.
