Who Is Renen?
Renen is a choreographer in Berlin's independent dance scene and an artist in the crossing fields of performance art, installation, playwriting and video. In his works, he mainly reflects on processes of art making, authorship, instituional critique and personal memory. His pieces were presented in different locations 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, he is curious in the embodyment of somebody else's vision and the processes to interpret it into one's own.
Besides that, Renen gives art tours at the Gropius Bau, Julia Stoschek Collection and the Brücke Museum in Berlin.
Many times he is mistaken for being Renana from the showbiz duo 'Celine and Renana'.
