“[Hoghe’s] works are as smart as they are moving”
The New York Times

Following his acclaimed U.S. debut with Crossing the Line last year, Raimund Hoghe will present a one-night, site-specific piece inspired by FIAF’s Le Skyroom: a personal meditation on his relationship with New York City.

Raimund Hoghe Bio
Raimund Hoghe was born in Wuppertal and began his career by writing portraits of outsiders and celebrities for the German weekly newspaper Die Zeit. These were later compiled in several books. From 1980 to 1990 he worked as dramaturge for Pina Bausch's Tanztheater Wuppertal which also became the subject matter for two more books. Since 1989 he has been working on his own theatre pieces for various dancers and actors. 1992 started his collaboration with the artist Luca Giacomo Schulte, who is till now his artistic collaborator. In 1994 he produced his first solo for himself, Meinwärts, which together with the subsequent Chambre séparée (1997) and Another Dream (2000) made up a trilogy on the twentieth century. Hoghe frequently works for television on projects such as Der Buckel, his 1997 hour-long self portrait for WDR (West German Radio and Television). His books have been translated into several languages. He has toured extensively in Europe, Japan, and Australia but is still little known in the US. He had his first, and long overdue, US tour in 2009, performing his ensemble work, Boléro Variations, at Portland's TBA Festival, the Walker Art Center, and DTW, as a co-presentation with the Crossing the Line Festival. The tour garnered sold out houses and critical acclaim. He lives in Düsseldorf and has been awarded several prizes including the Deutscher Produzentenpreis für Choreografie in 2001. Mr. Hoghe is known for energizing and destabilizing audiences as he questions conceptions of abnormality.
