Valerie Reding



Artist Statement

Valerie Reding is a choreographer and transdisciplinary artist working between Zurich and Luxembourg. After being trained as a classical ballet dancer, they graduated with a BA in Media Arts from Zurich University of the Arts. Their practice oscillates between dance, performance, photography, video, event production and drag. Bodies being at the heart of their work, they explore the potential of togetherness, shared vulnerability, transformation and camp to reconfigure the power relations within the socio-economic framework of our heteronormative, patriarchal and capitalist society. Their latest stage work m.a.d. premiered on the 3rd of November 2020 at Tanzhaus Zürich and explores the collective body of four performers and their deviation from the norm.
Supported by Réseau Grand Luxe, their works have been shown in galleries such as Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles), Last Tango (Zurich), FORMA Art Contemporain (Lausanne), LAC (Vevey) and Deep Trash by CUNTemporary (London), they have performed at festivals like zürich moves!, Zürich Tanzt, The Queer Biennial II (Los Angeles), La Fête du Slip (Lausanne), The Porny Days (Zurich) and the Queer Little Lies festival (Luxembourg) as well as at theaters like Tanzhaus Zürich, Dampfzentrale (Berne), Arsenic (Lausanne), Théâtre St. Gervais (Geneva), Counterpulse (San Francisco), Escher Theater (Luxembourg) and TROIS C-L Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois.
