Johanna Ackva

Johanna Ackva works as an artist in the fields of dance and performance. Collaborations and collective processes are central to her approach, in which she sees the body as a site of various movements and agencies, creating physical and meta-physical textures and landscapes. Together with Carrie McILwain, Magdalena Meindl, or Philipp Enders, Johanna conceived and realised several performances. In 2019, Johanna's works *Out of Our Hands *(Open Spaces / Tanzfabrik) and *thank you for all the food that I have received in my life *(VERY / Project Space Festival) were both presented in Berlin. Together with *Suddenly *collective, she premiered the piece *ESPRIT *(Open Spaces / Tanzfabrik). In 2020, Johanna receives the Elsa-Neumann-Scholarship which supports her current research on perceptions and practices around death and dying. As a dancer / performer and dramaturge, Johanna collaborates with various dance-, film-, and visual artists. In 2019/20, she assumed the role of ada Studios in-house-critic and taught as a guest teacher at Berlin's University of the Arts. www.johannaackva.com
