Lee Méir (DE/IL)



Lee Méir is a freelance choreographer, performer and costume designer, born in Jerusalem and based in Berlin since 2010. Her pieces vary from solos to collective formats, all grounded in her perspective of art as a nexus of ideas, people and craftsmanship. At the core of her work lies an on-going search for how we make sense out of things, investigated by exploring the interplay between chaos and order, as well as randomness and control. Méir has presented work internationally in platforms such as: Tanz im August Berlin, Brighton Festival, Heidelberg Tanzbiennale, Tanzquartier Vienna, the Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance Tel-Aviv a.o. She is a 2019 recipient of the Pina Bausch Fellowship in cooperation with L’Ecole des Sables in Senegal. Her recent pieces include safe&sound (2021) an ensemble stage piece delving into rhythm and togetherness (HAU, Hebbel am Ufer / Radialsystem Berlin), by the way (2021), a participatory performance about death for young audiences (explore dance network, fabrik Potsdam), a site-specific improvisation based evening of contemporary dance and new music Blossom Ends & Hearts (Maschinnenhaus Essen, Jan 2023) and a re-staging of Across the Middle, Past the East, and an unsettled cabaret (Sophiensaele 2018-2019, Ausufern Berlin 2022). Recently, Uferstudios Berlin has chosen Méir to be a selected artist for the European Network Project Life Long Burning’s Creative Crossroads programme. As part of this project she will premiere her new solo crying creatures crying at Uferstudios in May 2024. Since 2021 she has been investing in developing her own movement language shifting mediums through working with a core group of dancers as well as through teaching workshops. Lee completed choreography studies at HZT- Inter University Centre for Dance Berlin in 2013.
