Simone Gisela Weber is an artist and choreographer living in Berlin. She studied Theatre and Cultural Studies at the University of Leipzig and graduated from the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin (HZT) with a BA in Dance, Context and Choreography. She is co-founder of the artists* collective "Kimberly Kaviar", which has developed various experimental performances and installations dealing with theatrical dispositives as well as the creative process and artistic collaboration. Kimberly Kaviar was nominated by LAFT Berlin for the mentoring program "Newcomer" in 2017. Curator Ricardo Carmona accompanied Kimberly Kaviar until the end of 2019.
In her solo artistic practice Simone works at the interface of choreography, text and performance. Her interest lies in the construction of complex physical and visual compositions in which the body is placed in a state of risk. She believes that meeting forces of the material and immaterial world reveal the unknown and unusual. In her works she is inspired by ubiquitous habits and physical states, which she critically reinterrogates through an interplay of different media.
Together with Rosemarie Eberl she received the Scholarships for freelance artists* who offer a program for a young audience from Senat Berlin.
In 2020 she received SPECIAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM OF THE SENATE ADMINISTRATION FOR CULTURE AND EUROPE.
Among others, Simone has worked with deufert&plischke, Anna Aristarkhova, I -Jung Lim, Ellinor Ljungkvist, Sanna Blennow, Jan Rozman, Nile Koetting and Boris Charmatz.
