Marie Alexis is – before all else – a full time human being.
The human condition and the body in movement are the topics keeping me busy – as well as the need to understand and experience the most of it.
My professions and passions are one. I am a dancer, choreographer and teacher. I am a video artist, a dramaturg, writer, thinker and researcher.
I studied contemporary dance at Zurich Tanz Theater Schule (Zurich, Switzerland) and Laban Centre London. Life/Art Process at the Tamalpa Germany Institute. Massage Therapy and Yoga Therapy. All followed by a MA in Dance/Choreography at the Zurich University for the Arts ZHdK. Since 2020, I am Associated Junior Researcher at the Institute for the Performing Arts and Film IPF at the ZHdK.
I am deeply interested in social dynamics, relationships and communication and the “condition humaine”. These topics are always also found in my artistic work – they fuel it.
I am founder and artistic director of the compagnie O., a contemporary dance company based in Zurich.
