Simone Gisela Weber is a Berlin-based artist, performer and choreographer. 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.
Throughout her artistic development she has established long term artistic collaborations and a solo artistic practice, which she increasingly fuses together after keeping them as separat artistic agencies.

In her solo artistic practice she works at the intersection of choreography, installation 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 the confluence of forces from the material and immaterial worlds brings out the unknown and the unusual. In her work, she draws inspiration from ubiquitous habits and bodily states, which she critically questions through an interplay of different media.

She is co-founder of the "performing arts collective Kimberly Kaviar", which has developed various experimental performances and installations that explore theatrical dispositifs as well as the creative process and artistic collaboration. Kimberly Kaviar developed works such as Veneralia (2015), 3D WHITE (2016) and Foundation (2017). 3D White was invited to the P-Bodies Festival in Leipzig. MANIFEST: A Work on Progress (2017), an eight-hour performance installation, was shown in Berlin at Uferstudios. In Retrospective: Ecology of Occupation (2017) they experimented with the workshop format, this work was shown in the Super Local Berlin series by Constanza Macras/DorkyPark at Studio Verlin and was invited to the Performatica Festival in Puebla, Mexico.

In 2021 Kimberly Kaviar realized the video essay and performance installation LEASHED UNLEASHED in cooperation with Ringtheater Berlin and Theaterhaus G7 Mannheim, supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. Kimberly Kaviar was selected for the LAFT Berlin's "Newcomer" mentoring program in 2018 and mentored by curator Ricardo Carmona in Berlin until the end of 2019.

Together with Julia Keren Turbahn, she maintains a long-standing artistic collaboration, working on the state of hesitation as a productive force. Hypothetic Bodies (2021) is her latest choreographic work in this series, which explores odd temporalities and the potential of stasis, and first premiered in digital form in collaboration with Uferstudios Berlin and Maschinenhaus Essen. Hypothetic Bodies was supported by the Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and Kunststiftung NRW.

Currently she pursues her Master in Fine Arts in the program Time and Space at The Academy of Fine Arts of the University of the Arts Helsinki and DAS Choreography at the Academy of Theatre and Dance of Amsterdam University of Arts.
For her graduation work reverberation which was presented in the frame of KUVAN KEVÄT 2022 in Helsinki she received the Anita Snellman Grant.
