Florentina Holzinger

Florentina Holzinger (b. 1986, Vienna) is a choreographer who consciously plays with the shifting boundaries between high culture and entertainment. In her works, she explores different modes of female representation and questions the full potential of female physicality. Her piece TANZ, premiered in 2019, was one of the ten selected productions of the Theatertreffen 2020, and in the same year, the magazine Theater Heute named it "production of the year". In 2021, Holzinger received the prestigious Austrian performing arts award "NESTROY Prize" in the category "best director". From 2021 until 2026, Holzinger is an associated director/choreographer of the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin.
