Sarah Fdili Alaoui: Artist-Dance Maker


Sarah Fdili Aloui is a dancer and choreographer as well as a computer scientist, through which she discovered the area of movement analysis. Her research and practice centres on movement qualities and embodied interaction and reflective somatic practices. Digital mediation is a vital part of her creative experimentation. In mediated dance performances, she creates experiences for herself and other dancers that break new ground both technically and artistically. The technology is seen as an extension of the body and its role, both as a tool for mediation and a partner with decision making capabilities, is central to Sarah's creative practice.
