Beatrix Simkó
dancer, choreographer, media artist

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 more than ten years of the Hungarian dance scene, and in the last years she has worked in many international theatre and dance collaborations. She is an Aerowaves and Life Long Burning selected artist, who also works in a close partnership with the Budapest-based Workshop Foundation. 
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 2012 she earned the Leonardo grant and in 2015 the grant from Theatertreffen International Forum in Berlin. She has been on residencies in Tanzquartier (Vienna), Espace Catastrophe (Brussels), Uferstudios (Berlin) and MDT (Stockholm). 
She created choreography for Central Europe Dance Theatre and Csokonai Theatre Debrecen. As a performer and co-creator she worked in international projects on the border of dance and theatre such as Schauspielhaus Graz, Rodeo Festival Munich and with PengPalast! Company at Schalchthaus Theatre Bern. 
Since 2016 she has been performing her duet with Zoltán Grecsó, called #Orpheus#Eurydice which was awarded with the Grand Prize of the Hungarian Festival of Dance in 2018. 
The dance theatre performance Long time no see! co-created with Jenna Jalonen was selected in the Festival d’Avignon in 2018 and to Aerowaves Festival in 2019 in France.  
She has presented her works at several international venues such as Trafó House of Contemporary Arts, Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles, Španski borci Ljubljana, Hessischen Staatsballett in Darmstadt, Kampnagel, Kuopio Dance Festival.
