“A great white hope, will moving dance ahead and will continue to do so in the future. … Choreographer Alexandra Waierstall searches for a vocabulary of movement, formulating itself on the brink of consciuousness. It seems dreamlike or traumatized. The images she composes onto the stage carry narratives that are being invented in equal parts by the audience on the other side as well.“ (Melanie Suchy, ballettanz)

Her atmospherically dense choreographies are replete with a distinctive dance vocabulary and a strong language of imagery which enthralls the audience.
