Nicole Berndt-Caccivio (DE/CH)
Born in Switzerland in 1963, Nicole Berndt-Caccivio, Nica, studied classical and modern dance in Europe and at the Cunningham Studios in NYC. As a dancer, she was particularly inspired by the collaboration with the Tanzfabrik Berlin and the Tanztheater Zürich. In 1992 with her own company Ljada in Biel-Bienne (CH), she won together with Company Ricochet/UK the first prize in the festival of the Suzanne Dellal Center Tel Aviv, which opened the doors for her international career in Europe and the US. She has been guest lecturer for contemporary dance at a.o. the MUK Vienna, ZUKT Frankfurt a.M., ImPulsTanz, Seneca and Smash projects in Berlin and lead to artistic, soloistic and performative collaborations with a.o. Jürg Lietha (organist in Bern, CH), David Bloom (Berlin), Collective F (Bern), Nicolas Caccivio (Vienna, Biel-Bienne), Annelie André (Salzburg, Berlin), Renae Shadler/Roland Walter (Australia/Berlin) and Qadira Oechsle-Ali (Berlin, Frankfurt am Main). Since 2009 she is the artistic director of three projects, in which pieces are developed with elderly people, and teaches dance pedagogy for people of 55 years and older at the MUK in Vienna as well as in other projects for further education in Austria. Golden Age Workshops are another vehicle for Nicole to get in touch with elder people on a physical and artistic level.
Since 2004 she is a practitioner of Cranio Sacral Therapy/Osteopathy. Nica lives in Berlin (DE) and Biel (CH), is married, and thinks that getting older should be seen as inspirational and not as a deficit. In addition to the intensive cooperation with aspiring dance students and choreographers in the professional field, she develops interesting, demanding choreographies with amateur dancers all over Europe in order to be able to accompany them professionally on their way into the public realm.
