“The cie. toula limnaios is truly a prime address for contemporary dance made in germany.”
The cie. toula limnaios was founded in Brussels by the choreographer and performer Toula Limnaios and the composer Ralf R Ollertz in 1996. Two years later it moved its headquarters to Berlin. It produces within a continually expanding interdisciplinary network and works year-round with the ensemble. In 2001 it was awarded the prize of the “Meeting Neuer Tanz”. In 2003 it opened its own theater, the HALLE TANZBÜHNE BERLIN, which has been established internationally since then. In 2004 the company’s Beckett trilogy, titled “atemzug”, was produced as a dance film for ZDF/arte. Since 2005 the company has received Basisförderung (structural 2-year support) from the Berlin Cultural Senate. Its broad repertoire of 32 works can be seen on German stages as well as internationally in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Cyprus, Denmark, Ecuador, France, Ireland, Italy, Lituania, Lettland, Greece, Poland, Senegal, Spain, Switzerland and Venezuela. Today the cie. toula limnaios is one of the most successful companies for contemporary dance in germany. 2012, the cie. toula limnaios was honored with the george tabori award.
“Toula Limnaios’ choreographies are always documents of destabilization. Her existentialistic plunges to the depths of the soul have earned her an exceptional position in the German dance scene. The sophisticated visual aesthetics of the pieces never cease to impress. On her tours abroad, she is celebrated as a prime example of Berlin dance.” (Tagesspiegel, S. Luzina)
