Who Is Renen?
Renen (pronouns: they) is a choreographer in Berlin's independent dance scene and an artist in the crossing fields of performance art, installation, playwriting, and video. Their works mainly reflect on processes of art-making, authorship, institutional critique and personal memory. They have presented stage pieces and visual installations in Germany, Israel, Finland, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark and Brazil.
Renen worked in artistic collaborations with Jeremy Shaw (57th International Venice Biennale; Centre Pompidou), Lia Rodrigues (Favela da Maré, Rio de Janeiro), Boris Nikitin (Kaserne Basel; Wiener Festwochen), Julian Weber, deufert&plischke, Dafna Maimon and many more. As a performer for others, they are curious about the process of embodying somebody else's vision and interpreting it into one's own.
Besides, Renen works as mediator at Gropius Bau, Julia Stoschek Collection and the Brücke Museum in Berlin.
Many times they are mistaken for being Renana from the showbiz duo 'Celine and Renana'.
