tanzfuchs PRODUKTION / Barbara Fuchs


Under her own label tanzfuchs PRODUKTION, Barbara Fuchs has already created numerous plays, for adults as well as for children. Together with composer Jörg Ritzenhoff, she goes to the crossroads of acoustics, dance and aspects of visual arts in order to explore new artistic spaces for dance. With cleverly composed, always humorous perceptive irritations, she creates unforeseen references to body, sound and space, always showing the courage to be radical.

Barbara Fuchs worked as a dancer with different choreographers such as Frey Faust, Gabriella Staiger, Silke Z., Companhia Paulo Ribeiro, and many more. She engineered and created a number of light and stage designs before going on to develop her own choreographies. With her first solo in 2003, “durchleuchtet“, she founded tanzfuchs PRODUKTION as well as the choreographer’s network BARNES CROSSING with Ilona Pászthy, Suna Göncü, Gerda König and Dyane Neiman in 2006. Since 2009, she has also been producing dance plays for the littlest toddlers – like “Kopffüßler (headwalkers) – a dance performance for children from 0 to 4 years of age“ in 2010.

tanzfuchs PRODUKTION / Barbara Fuchs


Choreographer and performer Barbara Fuchs founded tanzfuchs PRODUKTION label in Cologne in 2003. She develops installational works and stage performances in close collaboration with composer Jörg Ritzenhoff, works that intertwine movement, electro-acoustic composition and spatial concepts. Until now, tanzfuchs PRODUKTION has created 18 solo and ensemble productions as well as seven pieces for a young audience that tour all over Europe. Barbara Fuchs received her education at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen and from James Saunders, among others, and danced, for example, with the Paulo Ribeiro ensemble in Portugal.

“It is the central aim of our work to explore theatre as a synesthetical space, enabling this experience.” (Barbara Fuchs)

Her “works are marked by a recalcitrant coolness. They are formally rigid – yet always funny. She also gained national attention as a trendsetter: She discovered a market niche for ‘dance for the smallest audience’, meaning children under the age of three.” Nicole Strecker, portrait for Tanzplattform Deutschland 2016
