Andrea Hackl is based in Holland and Austria. She works internationally as choreographer, dancer, teacher as well as video artist.
Hackl cherishes the power and poetry of dance in its physicality. Her work is, most of all, a celebration of life. Her artistic practice and research is inspired by cross-pollination, the alchemy of collaborations and interdisciplinary work. Her understanding of dance & movement got formed and enriched by conventional techniques as much as somatic and sensorial work.
Hackl has created work in collaboration with scientific researchers (evolving around the theme of human nature relationships) and has produced various films. She is exploring the medium of installation and hybrid installation performances.
She has danced with companies & choreographers like Jasper van Luijk/SHIFFT (@Korzo Productions), Cascade Dance Theater, Emanuel Gat Dance, United C, Suzy Blok and toured major venues and festivals worldwide. Her own work has been presented internationally, in Europe/Scandinavia, North/Central America, S/E Asia & India.
