Upcoming events:

The Running Tongue - On July 3 at Siobhan Davies Studios, another chance to catch this film installation co-directed by Siobhan Davies and David Hinton, for which I and 21 other choreographers devised imagery, following the UK premiere at Sadler’s Wells Theatre last month.

I’ll be discussing my next project Now that we know with Amy Bell on July 15 at Yorkshire Dance in Leeds as part of queer performance night Bend It.

My recent works, projects and collaborations include:

Group Study (a choreographic score for 10 performers created in the context of a science research collaboration with Guido Orgs) discussed at a recent event in London

Effective Dance: healing procedure for a German Expressionist object (solo performance in museums)

Table of Contents (collaborative installation performance with Siobhan Davies Dance) with recent performances in London and Vienna

"Dynamic" (Deborah Hay solo adaptation) and Turn Your F^*king Head (documentary film of the project)

Dance So You Think You Can (discussion project in public spaces and online)

Thanks for visiting and warm wishes,




“…a talented and generous artist.” Nicky Napier (Former Director, Dance4)

“Matthias is a very fine dancer and performer but this first solo work also demonstrates a strong choreographic mind.” Siobhan Davies (Artistic Director, Siobhan Davies Dance)
