Alice Tatge is an artist/dancer/choreographer/curator working in the fields of mixed-media installation and performance since 2004, and London based since 2001.
Born to Italian-American-Czech parents, Tatge began her Ballet training in Florence Italy in 1986, with her first professional contract as a child performer in 1989. In the 90’s she studied Graham technique both in Florence and NY. In 2001 she moved to London, completing a BA in dance for theatre from Trinity Laban in 2004 and an MA in Performance in 2011.
Tatge has a chameleonic approach to performance. Her practice resists categorization by deliberately working within a variety of genres and permutations and is deeply rooted in her ongoing investigation of physicality and perception. Since 2012 her work has involved queering the body and the hetero-normative image, whilst raising questions about identity politics and belonging within the current socioeconomic paradigm.
Influences include the amalgamation of cultures that construct her family history and DNA as well as themes of displacement and deterritorialization, fictional nostalgia, family archives and popular culture.
Her work has been exhibited, amongst others at the Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, Barbican, Wapping Project, Trinity Laban, Waterside Contemporary, Colchester Art Centre, ArtsAdmin, Freud Museum and ICA, London U.K as well as internationally across Europe and the US.
Artists, choreographers and companies she has worked with include: Tino Sehgal, Meg Stuart, Simone Aughterlony and Jen Rosenblit, Lundahl & Seitl, Xavier Le Roy, Mårten Spångberg, Film director John Maybury, designer Nigel Coates, Sioned Huws, & The Welsh National Theatre, Toni Mira, Punchdrunk.
