Steph Quinci is a Berlin-based dance and performance artist. Their aesthetic and research-based pursuits are defined by soft a legato demeanour, sculptural studies, release, and suppleness. Their dance background is a mix of classical ballet, American modern dance, and their studies as a junior collective member with the Compania Zappala in Sicily. Since five years they’ve danced with Paula Rosolen/Haptic Hide (Frankfurt AM), as well as working often with Go Plastic Company (Dresden), Caroline Beach (Berlin), Sandra Man (Berlin), Enad Marouf (Berlin) and as a guest performaner for Constanza Macras/Dorky Park (Berlin).

We are Caroline, Amelie, Lisa, Laura, and Steph, a loose crew of performers, dancers, artists, strippers, musicians, stage and costume designers, media artists, and researchers. We don’t all embody all of these categories, but we all sail through several of them. As individuals we are seasoned practitioners with our own practices but together we form a formidable crew that is as interested in chartering the unknown as we are in keeping the ship clean, i.e. holding space for each other and following the spiral all the way down. The enmeshment and collaboration between us is complex and sticky, and this group is not so much of a fixed collective as a container for chaotic growth. We are interested in alternative narratives as antidotes to neoliberal hegemony, gender as a vehicle against the state, representations of femme anger, decolonising the gaze, and the poetics of the cosmos found in the synecdoche of the human body.
