As an artist Salvatore is defined by its versatility and his focus on detail. His dance art is the result of continuous research that links aesthetic movement with mental drama. The action of the movement will be intensified through a style, art, and a discovery of physicality . He tries to establish connections that go beyond the physical perception or quality, so as to produce emotional and sensual experiences.

“What she (Dagmar Spain) has is a keen sense of the variety of human experience and the conviction that it lies at the heart of work for the stage.” - Toby Tobias, Village Voice, New York
studied art in action at the Academy of Fine Arts in Braunschweig. During her studies, she was involved as a performance artist, actress and choreographer in numerous productions at home and abroad. Among other things, she worked for the Freedom Theatre Jenin in Palestine, the New Butoh and Space Dance Centre Tokyo in Japan and the Artblau Tanzwerkstatt.
Since 2011, Agnetha Jaunich has focused on the interation between movement and space in her work. Her pieces are characterized by a close interaction ￼between the performer and video, lighting and/or room installation. Here, they seek out new ways of connecting different media. In addition to this interdisciplinary approach, Agnetha‘s performances feature a close interaction of performance and dance .
Because of her experiences as an actess, theatrical moments can be found repeatedly in her work. Therefore, every dance movement is preceded by a deep emotion that shows the close connection between the dancer and movement. Through this performative approach various duets, solos and group performances have emerged in recent year.
