Else Tunemyr (1984, Sweden) lives in Frankfurt, Germany. Her research centres on the question of how the political is read through choreography, and if it is possible to talk about feminist dramaturgy. Currently, this includes work on the idea and practice of weary and passive bodies and a choreography of withdrawal. Parallel to her own choreographic work Else works as a dramaturg and performer and have been performing and collaborating with Andrew Hardwidge, Benjamin van Bebber, Carolina Mendonça, Catalina Insignares, Les Trucs, Lygia Clark, Mårten Spångberg, Jamila Johnson-Small, Janine Harrington, Mike Kelley, Simone Forti, Tino Sehgal, Xavier Le Roy and others.
She engages in different collaborations, sometimes as a dancer and sometimes as a maker, often without a clear division. She studied for a BA in Dance Theatre at Laban, London, and a MA in Choreography and Performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies, Giessen. Else was an emerging Dance Artist in Residency at the Southbank Centre London, where she developed work shown at the Southbank Centre, Chisenhale Dance Space and Sadler’s Well’s Theatre.
