BIOGRAPHY

Olivia Mitterhuemer, based in Salzburg, is a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher with a focus on house dance and hip-hop freestyle. Her curiosity regarding African-American influenced dance styles brought her to various dance productions (Hungry Sharks, INFLUX, Toihaus) and to stages or festivals such as brut Wien, ImPulsTanz Vienna, Palace of Fine Arts San Francisco, Dock11 Berlin, DANCENET Sweden or KoresponDance Prague.

With her company Potpourri Dance she created her own pieces Houseward Bound and 4 A.M. (in co-production with brut Wien) in 2019 and 2021. For her current production Friend.shift with Farah Deen, she deepened her artistic work during residencies in St. Gallen, Dakar, Paris and Vienna.

She was able to express her love for teaching at Salzburg Festival, ORFF Institute or Festspielhaus St. Pölten, among others. In addition to her passion for HipHop and House culture, in recent years she has also immersed herself in the field of interdisciplinary improvisation and “instant composition”, which has strengthened her understanding of music, dance, movement and perception.

As co-founder of the internationally renowned Streetdance festival Flavourama in Salzburg, she also travels throughout Europe as an opinion leader, sharing her experiences as both a female organiser and artist. Collaborations have taken place with La Place Paris, Streetstar Stockholm or Pure House Vilnius, among others. In 2020 Olivia Mitterhuemer was awarded the annual scholarship for performance of the Country of Salzburg.
