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, Denmark and Brazil.
Renen worked in artistic collaborations with Jeremy Shaw (57th Venice Biennale), Lia Rodrigues (Favela da Maré, Rio de Janeiro), Julian Weber, deufert&plischke, Dafna Maimon and many more. As a performer for others he is curious about embodying someone else's vision and the process it takes to interpret it into one's own.
Nowadays he performs at the English Theatre Berlin, Tanzfabrik and gives art tours at 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'.
