VON B BIS Z
As a young professional freelance company, we realize international projects on the edge of dance, physical theatre, circus and visual art.
We see art as holistic and boundless, and work across all fields and disciplines. It is important to us to always create a total work of art.
The first collaboration of "Von B bis Z" started in 1992. After several years of friendship, living and working together, Felix Baumann and Jan Zöller decided in 2020 to officialy found the freelance company Baumann & Zöller GbR, based between Baden-Württemberg and Berlin (DE).The company is planned as a platform for their past and future projects, such as the dance and theatre performances “The WARdrobe” (2019), “How things go” (2020), “Mahaba” (2019), "Suitcaseboarding" (2021), "Plan B,C,D" (2021/22) "Seismic" (2021/22), as well as the workshop “7 Weights” (2019), the “Laboratory of Fools” (2020) and "Moving Material" (2021/22).
Each project is based on a collaboration with a wider team of international artists, such as: the choreographer and dancer Nicole Nigro (CAN), the physical theatre performer and trainer Sean Henderson (US/CH), the choreographer and scenographer Marie Gourdain (FR/CZ), the scenographer, performer and musician Jakub Stourac (CZ), and the comic painter and musician Pilou Barge (FR).
