ALINICAN a freelance dancer, performance artist, choreographer and activist.


Alexandra Schwartz aka alinican (born 1986 in Würzburg, Germany) is a Berlin-based artist who is interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative processes of creating innovative and subversive dance theatre productions. Her non-linear work is inspired by philosophical and polititcal questions drawn from life experience. She is known for her ability to fuse performance art with activism.


She believes that every person regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, race and class has the right to live without oppression and has the right of self-actualization. Dance is her language of resistance!


Her artistic background includes extensive training in Contemporary and Modern Dance, Ballet, Contact Improvisation and Street Dance in Berlin, Paris and Stockholm. Alexandra Schwartz received two scholarships enabling her to take part in the international programs for professional dancers at the Broadway Dance Center in NYC in 2005 and the Vertigo School of Dance in Jerusalem in 2014.


Her activist work includes organizing the “Radical Contact“, a meeting on Contact Improvisation and Body Politics and more recently she has been involved with NGOs in the Middle East using dance to promote peace and social change.
