Dance Imprints – Acting

Headshots February 2013 82

Acting is somehow something I always wanted to do. Around the age of 8, it came so clear to my mind. And what happened? I became a dancer, feeling often trapped in a body that always wanted to show feelings. Once one of my choreography teachers in New York remarked that all my movements stem from feelings, my inner world. I was surprised to hear that, because I did not know that movements can be generated anywhere else. My physicality I have experienced extensively as a gymnast and now there was something else to be explored, could it be the feeling body?

Throughout my career in dance I actually always worked with actors. One of my most vivid inspirations were the films of Andrej Tarkovsky, especially Stalker and Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator. They related so much to my use of non spoken language and its profound impact. As a trained dancer and choreographer I was taught to reduce the movements to its essential components. I feel that in acting the process is the same. In the end I would like to always know when it is essential to speak, and when on the other hand my body and face say all that there is to say without one word. I want to dance when I speak and speak when I dance. So maybe dancing after all has prepared me to be a better actor. Most important I love doing it.
