Johanna Nielson is a performer and choreographer, lives and works in Vienna. Her practice involves dance, real time creation and voice with a focus on phenomena of the sensual and the sensible. Johanna creates fluid performative formats and spaces, in which different disciplines encounter and audience-performer relationships are challenged. In collaboration with Agnes Schneidewind, she is working on a series of performative experiments dealing with mechanisms of translation (Rumpuls, performance series AH I SEE). On the interaction of (experimental) music and dance she investigates with the artists* Marina Poleukhina, Magdalena Chowaniec, Stefan Voglsinger, Jakob Schauer, Patric Redl or the Phoenix Baroque Austria Ensemble. Among others she performed with Inge Kaindlsdorfer/lux flux, Theresa Luise Gindlstrasser, Claire Lefèvre, Florentina Holzinger, Evandro Pedroni, Arne Mannott, Alexander Chernyshkov/Error Theater and Oleg Soulimenko. She received the danceWEB scholarship for ImPulsTanz 2017. She is a boardmember of Im_flieger – KünstlerInnen Initiative and works for Wiener Frauenhäuser.
