Zufit Simon

“The emphasis and goal of my work is to question the self-evident, create confusion – first in me, then in the audience – in order to confront ourselves with our own perception and things we take for granted. I portray this, with the help of the body, as part of a bigger picture.” Zufit Simon

ZUFIT SIMON, performer and choreographer, born in Israel, completed her high school diploma in dance and studied contemporary dance at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst (HfMDK) in Frankfurt am Main.
Her works have been shown at national and international festivals, among others in Italy, Austria, Tanzania, the Czech Republic, Poland and France.

In 2012, Zufit Simon was selected for the German Dance Platform pitching in Dresden with the solo “Wild Thing”.
At the German Dance Platform 2014 at Kampnagel, Hamburg, she presented the choreographic concert “I LIKE TO MOVE IT”.
2016 - 2019 she completed the trilogy “un-emotional” about the relationships between physical language, mimicry and gestures that she has been researching and developing for several years.
Together with the director Moritz Schönecker, she opened the Theaterhaus Jena season with the production „Die Zofen“ (J. Genet) and „Judith“ (F. Hebbel) in 2015.
During the 2017/2018 season, she curated a dance series there. She has been a part of the artistic direction of the artblau Tanzwerkstatt since 2018.
Zufit Simon has been working closely with musician and video artist Fredrik Olofsson for ten years; he has been involved in all of her productions in recent years. Most recently she presented SCHÄUME (FOAM), a choreographic research of the instable (world premiere 2019, LOT-Theater Braunschweig) and together with Lois Alexander and Clarissa Rêgo she created STRANGE FOREIGN BODIES, inspired by „58 Indices on the body“ by Jean-Luc Nancy (world premiere 2020, schwere reiter, Munich).
„Passable, not Presentable“, a choreographic research on a shattered Jewish identity premiered at LOT-Theater Braunschweig in 2021, the Munich-Premiere is presented February 3 to 5, 2022, at schwere reiter.
Her piece about dance as a form of protest "Radical Cheerleading" (premiere 2022) was nominated for "DER FAUST" Deutscher Theaterpreis 2023 - Inszenierung Tanz. Watch more of her work: tanzforumberlin
