Alice Tatge is a performance artist and choreographer. Her work locates itself in the field of live art/ installation and is also deeply rooted in her experience as an independent dance artist. Her most recent performances have revolved around her interest in the phenomenology of sense perception and the possibility of providing interactive/ close encounter experiences for audience members, both in theatrical and non-theatrical environments. Alice has also branched out into the media of film and video installation, which she considers as an extension of her choreographic and compositional practice.

Her early dance practice also included the study of the Graham technique, both in Italy and the United States (mainly New York).
