Choreographer, performer, dancer, writer.
Ami Garmon, American, has lived and worked between France and Berlin since 1988 and moved permanently to Berlin in 2003.
She creates mostly one-woman shows for theaters and museums, often collaborating with visual and sound artists in performance installations that are intensely visceral and poetic immersive atmospheres for her writings, her voice and her dances. Her interest has always been on emotion and nostalgia. With a focus on writing, performance and precision of movement, her work stretches over diverse fields and media.
She has received generous support throughout the years from the Ministère de la Culture en France and Hauptstadtkulturfonds from Germany and co-productions with theaters in France, Berlin and Spain, the Institut Français in Bilbao, Berlin and Kyoto.
