Born in Austria, Vienna in 1986, Florentina Holzinger is a dancer and choreographer who lives and works in Amsterdam and Vienna. Her works consciously play with the shifting boundaries between high culture and entertainment, exploring different modes of female representation and questioning the full potential of female physicality. She studied choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam and her solo work Silk received the Prix Jardin d’Europe at lmPulsTanz in 2012. Following her collaborations with Vincent Riebeek (Kein Applaus für Scheisse, Spirit, Wellness and Schönheitsabend) she created the trilogy Recovery, Apollon and TANZ. In 2018 she was awarded the first ever De Châtel Award for Apollon. In 2021 she will be artist in residence at the Volksbühne, under the direction of René Pollesch.
