Seline Baumgartner (born 1980 in Zurich, CH) is a talented story teller who uses body movement, dance and performance as her language. Her stories deal with personal relationships - from intimacy to experiences of collectiveness. The question of individual behavior opposed to but also as a part of group dynamics is crucial to Baumgartner's work. The idea that the body is more than a medium to express oneself and beyond that capable of saving memories plays a central role also in her latest work Apart From Us.
