Has been researching and working as independent dance and theatre maker in collaboration with various international companies and organisations over the past 5 years. Amongst others with Accademia Teatro Dimitri (CH), the cultural centre Plum Yard (CZ), in collaboration with the independent dance and theatre group Divadlo Continuo (CZ), the cultural centre for performing arts Studio ALTA in Prague (CZ), the physical theatre collective tYhle (CZ), the centre for circus and dance Katapult Berlin (DE), the Academy of Fools in Paris (FR), and the Diyar Dance Theatre in Bethlehem (PSE).
During this time he was developing his research and art practise, focused on the formation of a specific movement and theatre language, merging different disciplines such as physical, dance and visual theatre with stage design composition and the art of the comic. Already during his master studies in Physical Theatre, at the Accademia Teatro Dimitri (CH), Baumann's research focus was consistently dedicated to an interdisciplinary and experimental approach, aiming to develop an original tragicomic movement language, using the tool of the body in action to express the absurdities of daily life.
After completing his studies and meanwhile working as professional freelance artist in several international creations (2016-2020), Baumann is founding his own association - the freelance company “Von B bis Z” (Baumann & Zöller GbR) based in Baden-Württemberg (DE). The company is planned as platform for his past and future projects in the context of dance, theatre and circus, such as the performances: “The WARdrobe” (2019) and “How things go” (2020), as well as the workshop concept “7 Weights” (2019) and the “Laboratory of Fools” (2020).
For this undertaking Baumann is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media in the program NEUSTART KULTUR, aid program DIS-TANZEN of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (2020/21).
