Dance Performer and Maker
Celina Liesegang trained extensively both in the UK and France in theatre, singing and music before attending the London Contemporary Dance School. During her time there she also attended the California Institute of the Arts working with Lucky Plush Productions choreographer Julia Rhoads, and performed at the Walt Disney Modular Theater and REDCAT Los Angeles. She later undertook the JV2 Professional Development Certificate where she performed alongside Jasmin Vardimon Company in Maze as well as on JV2’s UK Tour. She was a founding member of Kinetic Dance Company, working also with Cando2 and more recently Eva Recacha.
Having choreographed for a number of years, notably in installation and site specific settings (as well as in film and on stage) her more recent work tends to place a strong focus on the spectator’s participation and their role within each piece be it active or passive. Her work has been presented both nationally and internationally in venues including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Linbury Studio Theatre (Royal Opera House), Greenwich Dance Agency, Robin Howard Dance Theatre, Peckham Space, South London Gallery, Galeria Walk&Talk (PO) and the Sharon Disney Lund Dance Theatre (US). She since has been working as a freelance dance artist both in the UK and in Switzerland.
