Frauke Requardt is a German-born, London-based choreographer.
Frauke trained in Germany, New York and London. Although her main pursuit is choreography, she has also performed in Lea Anderson’s work as a Cholmondeley for several years. Her choreographic work is characterised by physically challenging choreography, a strong theatricality, dark humour and an overall sense of surrealism. She uses text and live music and a mixture of abstract and emotionally based movement to deliver highly engaging work.
Frauke was an associate artist at The Place between 2004-6 and alongside Work Place she is also an associate artist at Greenwich Dance. Frauke has presented her work in the UK and internationally, having enjoyed residencies in Colombia, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Ireland and Germany.
Her full-evening works to date include Jammy Dodgers, a fantastical world, with a rolling line up of bands from the London contemporary Jazz scene; the Lynch-esque Roadkill Cafe; and Pequenas Delicias, an absurdist site-specific piece for cafes and restaurants. Electric Hotel, created in collaboration with experimental theatre director David Rosenberg and co-produced Fuel and Sadler’s Wells, came to London in June 2010.
Her latest work Episode premiered at The Place on in June 2011, and will tour this autumn.
