Simon Mayer (AT)

Simon Mayer is a performer, choreographer and musician, was born in Austria in 1984 and studied at the Vienna State Opera Ballet School, at the Performing Arts - Research Studios in Brussels (P.A.R.T.S.) and was a member of the Vienna State Opera Ballet. 2009 he founded his band "Rising halfmoon" as singer, songwriter and guitarist. Simon worked a.o. for Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker ("The Song"), Wim Vandekeybus ("Frisking") and Zita Swoon. He choreographed several solos, duos and group pieces, which are internationally presented ("o feather of lead”, “dancing with the soundhobbyist/zita swoon", "kopf hoch", "monkeymind", "SunBengSitting" etc.). Simon was artist in residency at Theatre de L’L in Brussels and together with his association m-arts he organises the international art festival SPIEL.

Simon grew up on a farm in Upper Austria. Folk dance and folk music are part of his background, and at the moment also the central theme in his artistic career. Both his last piece "SunBengSitting" and his latest choreography "Sons of Sissy" deal with folk art a.o. As a guest lecturer, he taught contemporary dance and folk dance at the Conservatory Vienna and at various festivals (ImPulsTanz, Nueva Verta Festival Kuopio, Games Festival, etc.).
