Sabine Karb

Dancer, Choreographer

Sabine Karb received her dance training at the Iwanson School for Contemporary Dance in Munich, combined with dance residencies of several months in New York and Los Angeles. Since then she has been working as a dancer and choreographer.

In her projects, she investigates everyday events in different places, always focusing on contemporary movement language despite interdisciplinary connections. In her choreographies she shows an open eye for the absurdities of our performance society and the physical effects on people. Radio play layers, sound collages and the inclusion of language material typical of the time are an integral part of her work.

Already during her training she taught contemporary dance in the Munich area. Since 2011 she has also been working in schools, where she develops dance projects with children and young people until they are ready for the stage. Sabine Karb is a member of the team of Tanz und Schule e.V./Fokus Tanz.
