Sylvia is a Bristol-based performance maker, originally from Germany. She creates Live work for theatres, galleries and public space. Her performances have been presented widely in the UK, such as at SPILL Festival at the Barbican London, and in Europe, e.g. Denmark, Poland, Germany and Spain.
Consciousness, memory, personal histories and risk are reoccurring themes and focus points. She is interested in the Live moment of performance and likes to consider the presence of an audience, whilst applying simple methods for creating places, situations and interactions in space.
Sylvia is also the Director and Co-Producer of You & Your Work (Y&YW) performance festival in Bristol. Y&YW commissions artists and showcases risk-taking work of performance artists whilst aiming to reach and engage diverse communities and audiences.
Sylvia is an Inbetween Time Associate Artist and a member of Residence, an artist-led organisation creating space for artists to make theatre, performance and Live Art in Bristol.
