Katja Grässli


Katja (Switzerland) grew up in the Swiss mountains. She studied expressionist dance theater performance at Fontys Dance Academy Tilburg.

The combination of body language and abstraction in dance formed the basis for her first dance pieces. She worked as a dancer and choreographer in the Netherlands and Switzerland and has collaborated with the Production House Brabant, Festival Cement and Theater de Nieuwe Vorst, among others. As a dancer she worked with Sonja Augart (Fragmenta), Pia Meuthen (Panama Pictures), Vloeistof and De Kwekerij. In Switzerland she worked with Barbara Weber (Theater am Neumarkt, Zurich), Mike Müller and Compagnie Sans Filtre. Together with Mariska Koopman she formed Guzik-dance Dance Theatre.

Recently Katja is the artistic director of MoveToMeet.
