Dancer and Choreographer Isabelle Schad studied classical dance in Stuttgart and worked with many choreographers until she started creating her own projects from 1999 on. Her research focusses on the body and its materiality, the body as a process, place and space, the relationship between body, choreography, (re)presentation, form and experience, body practice as a site for learning processes, community and political involvement.

Her projects operate at the interface of dance, performance and visual arts and are featured internationally. She co-founded several projects/open collectives that search for ways of linking different practices and researches whilst questioning the modes of production. She teaches all over the world and in different formats. She is co-organizer of the working space Wiesenburg-Halle in Berlin.
