What is a body in a system where true situations have no meaning? An advancement to Julia’s Werkstück residency at Tanzquartier Vienna (2013), Drifting Towards Non-Existence deals with personal representation in the digital and the real world in different settings. Inspired by the physical identity of the Hikikomori — people who, by isolating themselves, remain present only in the digital world — this performance explores the lost and rediscovered notions of skin limitations.

Julia Danziger was born in 1981 in Vienna in a musician context and graduated with a University Diploma of Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2010. Between 2005-2009 she trained in contemporary dance professionally across Europe and she is now working and living as a freelance dancer/performer and choreographer in Vienna. She has previously engaged in performance activities in France, Sweden and Austria, and has signed a number of own choreographic projects: POLYPHONIC LAB, Verlass die Stadt, …so not conform! with Nicole Waller, rushupslowdown, Jeux d’eau, bodymantics, Was ist, wenn nichts mehr ist?, Souvenir, 1#, expugno/expugno 2.0, Von Wann Nach Wo, and My body is a drugstore I and II. Together with choreographer Anna Knapp, she is the founder of the House of Motion association.
