Alexandra Bachzetsis

Alexandra Bachzetsis (b. 1974) is a choreographer and visual artist who lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. Her artistic practice is located at the interface between dance, performance, visual art and theatre. Many of her works are concerned with choreographies of the body and in particular with the ways in which we appropriate gestures, modes of expression, patterns of identification and fantasies from popular culture as we constantly reinvent and define our bodies. Bachzetsis is interested in the reciprocal influence of ‘popular commercial’ media (social media, video clips and television) and ‘art’ (ballet, modern and contemporary dance, performance and visual art).
