ZOE is a freelance artist, dancer, musician and choreographer, working at tanzhaus NRW, ZAKK Düsseldorf, Junges Schauspielhaus Düsseldorf, Schauspiel Köln a.o. with a focus on queer-feminist and inclusive working. Starting with urban dance styles, through jazz and contemporary dance, her focus changed during the last few years towards Voguing and the ballroom culture, a dance style relatively unknown in Europe. Since 2011, ZOE has been travelling through Europe, the USA and especially New York City as voguing’s birthplace, trying to learn and understand more about ballroom culture. From 2012-2017, she was part of House of Melody, Germany’s first voguing and ballroom house, establishing a scene in Germany with it. Since 2019, ZOE is working more and more on her own interdisciplinary stage productions. The production Black Magic, an homage to Black transwomen she developed, was shown as part of the Britney X Festival 2020 at the Schauspiel Köln. Currently, she is working on FEMINASAGA, a reappraisal of the witch-hunt in the context of #Metoo and reclamation of the feminine, which will premiere at tanzhaus NRW in October 2020.
