maRia Probst (AT)



Since 1999 maRia Probst is a freelance Dance/Performance artist and teacher of Contemporary Dance originally trained at the Anton Bruckner Private University of Linz. During her training at Moving on Center in San Francisco she certified as Somatic Educator and Participatory Arts Practitioner. She has worked in collective settings, traditional choreographer / dancer relationships, developed her solo work, curated, designed and organized artistic events. She has worked for more than ten years with drama school students pedagogically and artistically mainly in the field of site specific performance. Since more than fifteen years she is co-leading rollingpoint (an association for Contact Improvisation and related dance and movement practices). Since 2007 together with colleagues she is fostering interdisciplinary and artistic foundational research with special interest in practising performance scores which examine perceptual-, cognitive- and decision-making processes. The focus of their research is on probing somatic methods in regard to applicability in performance settings and translation processes in between kinaesthetic, tactile, visual and acoustic experiences.
Her current works like "Twist&Talk" (TQW, Im_flieger 2018), "The Body is and is and is" (Künstlerhaus 2017), "Nachtgewebe" (Urhof 20 2015) are hybrids between participatory art with a mediating aspect to it and post or postpostmodern performance-settings. maRia Probst is a Tuina-Practitioner, Somatic Educator, Somatic Fascia-Therapist and a mother.
