About Erika Winkler

Cologne choreographer, dancer and teacher Erika Winkler works with principles devoted to physical perception. Through a multitude of tasks, she sends the body on a quest for new and unusual paths. She has been intensively occupied with, among other things, “thinking” physical work that sharpens self-perception in improvisation, thus schooling the skill for the repetition of learned movement patterns.
Erika Winkler received her dance education at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen and, following her graduation, worked at a number of theatres and in freelance companies, with an engagement of several years with Dutch Company RAZ. She developed projects for Ruhr.2010 and is a regular choreographer for Team Plöger/Winkler/Becker at the FFT Düsseldorf. She teaches workshops internationally and has been an esteemed and popular teacher at tanzhaus nrw since 1998. Here, as well as at PACT Zollverein and for companies like Ultima Vez, Neuer Tanz or Random Dance, she offers regular professional training, too.
