The Marshaller

Collective curating

For this year’s festival edition, Angela Guerreiro decided not to curate the local Hamburg dance scene by herself. Instead, DanceKiosk-Hamburg invited all applicants to come together, discuss the applications, and decide about the program collectively.


The Marshaller

From and with Gloria Höckner


The Marshaller is a solo-performance which explores the body as an ongoing process of embodiment and medium of cultural significance. Moving in meditative slowness, the body oscillates between representation and abstraction. Through it's nomadic movement of exploration it articulates itself in constantly new spaces of association and thus is opened for the imagination of the audience.

Gloria Höckner lives and works in Hamburg in the fields of performance art and choreography. Through her examination of queer identities and body politics her artistic interest mainly relates to the relationship between body, voice and language. After her graduate studies of theatre-, film- and media-sciences in Vienna she started her M.A. in Performance Studies in Hamburg.
