Lea Kieffer is a French, Berlin based performer, dance artist, and costume/clothing maker. Her work explores processes of transformation and the dialogue between imagination and physicality through dance, bodywork and craftsmanship in hybrid and transdisciplinary formats. Her dance is influenced by a background in sports and crafts and a postmodern dance education based on improvisation, especially contact improvisation and somatic practices. From this collection of knowledge, she has built a practice of performing for others, performing improvisation, building her own performances, teaching and research through somatic practices and through making clothes and costumes for the stage. All of her practices are rooted in developing new narratives for the body and for movement with a specific inspiration from science fiction, and action movies and B-rated movies. Her current research « Sci fi anatomy » is a hybrid performance-workshop that creates dialogue between the matter of the body and the sea of our thoughts. Since 2012, she has created with partner of crimes Rocio Marano, under the identity of Los(t) Ninjas, multimedia performances ( “Matter of Blood”,” Blind Date (Literally)”, workshops “Los(t) Ninjas Practice” and shares the adventure of life. In the last year, she worked as performer and costume maker for Frida Giulia Franceschini “Tricks for gold”, Yuko Kaseki & Teo Vlad in “ CUNTethiques & SQUATconstellations”, Lee Meir & André Lewski in “von Hier nach Dort”. As a performer, she worked with Jared Gradinger & Angela Schubot, Jeremy Shaw, Isabel Lewis, K.A.U. & Wdovick among others. She also sometimes embraces focusing on costumes and scenographies like for “Storlaut” and “Menstrual Metal” by Jule Flierl, “Caring Banquise” by Mathilde Monfreux and “Salutations Mistinguette”by Stephanie Auberville.
