Public in Private / Jasna L. Vinovrški & Clément Layes

Clément Layes lives and works as a choreographer and performer in Berlin since 2008. Together with Jasna L. Vinovrški, he founded the company Public in Private here (www.publicinprivate.com). Clément's works move at the interface between choreography, visual arts and philosophy. His focus is on observations of everyday life.  His performances - including "Allege"; (2010), "The Green Chair"; (2012), "Things that surround us" (2012), "Dreamed apparatus" (2014) and "TITLE"; (2015) - are shown internationally. In October 2017, the production "Die ewige Wiederkehr" was premiered at the Sophiensælen in Berlin. The group piece is the first choreographic work in a new series in which Layes explores the manifestation and mechanics of rhythm. clementlayes.com

Jasna L. Vinovrški works as a performer, choreographer and curator. She grew up in Zagreb and has lived and worked abroad since the disintegration of Yugoslavia. After moving to Berlin in 2008, she founded Public in Private with her partner Clément Layes. Within this company context, the two artists continue to develop separate choreographic signatures to this day, but support each other in close artistic supervision. www.publicinprivate.com
In 2012 Jasna received her MA degree in choreography at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin (HZT). She is particularly committed to creating alternative platforms for Berlin-based artists, especially from the dance and performance fields. From 2014 to 2017, Jasna co-hosted and organized a platform for experimental art at Atelierhaus am Flutgraben called 3AM. From 2019-2020, she was co-curator of the Montag Modus Klimata event series at Collegium Hungaricum Berlin and Atelierhaus Flutgraben. Since 2019 Jasna is co-organizer of the artist platform Flutgraben Performances. Last but not least, she is a mother to her two children Calissa (12) and Alva (2). www.jasnavinovrski.com
