Since 1989 editta braun company has been a guest at renowned festivals all over Europe, in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Tunesia, Senegal, Uzbekistan, Russia, India and Japan. The process of creating emphasizes on the equal collaboration of artists from different disciplines. In this way dancers, actors, musicians, light designers, visual artists join the company to collaborate under the same umbrella.

From 1996 onwards the creation of her pieces has been inseparably connected with the music of composer Thierry Zaboitzeff. Moreover carismatic dancers as Anna Maria Müller, Dante Murillo and many others contribute their creativity to the company’s projects since several years. Thomas Hinterberger and Peter Thalhamer join the company’s forces since 1998 with light-designing.

editta braun company’s work is opposing the meshes of network of systemically legitimised constraints, that is gradually creeping into our everyday lives, by exposing themselves to conditions of production in the socalled third world. Artistic productions and collaborations in India, Uzbekistan, Egypt, Senegal, Greece: this is not just the experience of a reality “outside” - it is also the bringing-back of these experiences into the increasingly hermetic space of our societies.
