Beatrix Simkó
dancer, choreographer, media artist

Beatrix Simkó is a dancer, choreographer and media artist. She is constantly in a vivid dialogue on intercultural perspectives about social structures. In her works she engages the environment surrounding us through the expressive tools of the physical body. In her stage works she has a strong focus on visuality, and so often combines other mediums. In connection with her performative works she initiates reach-out projects, by that engaging the audience in different formats.  
She graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest and the Hamburg University, where she studied performance and media art. She has been an active creator and performer for fifteen years of the Hungarian dance scene, and in the last eight  years she has worked in many international theatre and dance collaborations. 
Currently she is working on several international co-productions, mainly related to Germany. She is an Aerowaves and Life Long Burning selected artist, and works in a close partnership with the Budapest-based Workshop Foundation. Her latest work ‘It Contains Hard Parts’ was realised by the support of the Goethe International Coproduction Fund. 
She also created choreography for Central Europe Dance Theatre, Csokonai Theatre Debrecen and Junges Ensemble Stuttgart. 
She has presented her works at several international venues such as Festival d’Avignon, Aerowaves Festival, Trafó House of Contemporary Arts, Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles, Španski borci Ljubljana, Hessischen Staatsballett in Darmstadt, Tanz NRW Festival, Kampnagel, Kuopio and Oulu Dance Festival.
