Joana Tischkau

Choreographer

  • Berlin (Germany)

Joana Tischkau received her formal dance training at Coventry University in the UK. In the master's degree programme in choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Gießen, she researched how pop-cultural, black-connoted, dance practices attributed to social space can be interwoven with intersectional, feminist and post-colonial theories to form an artistic practice.In addition to continuously developing her own pieces and choreographies, for example about the ambivalent connection between the defence mechanisms of white fragility and forms of cultural appropriation, Joana Tischkau regularly collaborates with the director Anta Helena Recke, the artist Nuray Demir, the dramaturge Elisabeth Hampe and the feminist performance collective She She Pop.
