Jule Flierl

Jule Flierl is an artist from Berlin who works with choreography and the voice. Using choreography and somatic singing methods, her scores unsettle the relationship between seeing and hearing: What you see is not always what you hear, and what you hear is not always what you see. Through her work and practices, she proposes that the voice itself is dancing.
Jule Flierl wonders how the baroque voice of bel canto would inhabit the gestures of the romantic ballet (Operation Orpheus, 2016), how anti-propaganda of Valeska Gert's dancing sounds would have mooved in the Weimar Republic (Störlaut, 2018) and how to choreograph the separation of body image and vocal sound from Katalin Ladik's avant-garde performances during the Cold War (UFO, 2021). She is fascinated by how conceptions of the body change with historical time, the media and political context, that the voice as technology of the self always finds new relationships with the body.
