The participants immediately took Carmen Mar to their hearts when she taught at tanzhaus as a substitute teacher. They wanted more. Carmen began ballet and Flamenco lessons at the tender age of four in a small dancing school in Northern Spain. Later on, she discovered modern dance. Following her studies of education sciences and psychology, she decided to dedicate herself to her real passion and went to the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds to study contemporary dance. “For a number of years, I was active as a choreographer in England and Spain, was a member of several companies and attended dance castings.” So, she eventually made her way to Düsseldorf when she took over the role of Carmen (!) at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein. She contributed as a performer at Cirque du Soleil, at the Ballett am Rhein as well as at Aalto Theater Essen and in pieces by Cologne choreographer Angie Hiesl. She additionally conducted the professional trainings at MichaelDouglas Kollektiv in Cologne and has a practice as a certified yoga teacher. Apart from this, she works on her own artistic projects in different constellations, for example with the all-female Cologne nutrospektif collective. Carmen has been influenced by release technique, powerful Graham technique as well as by choreographers like Merce Cunningham and José Limon.
