Guido Markowitz - Vita

Guido Markowitz was born in 1969 in Villach, Austria. He studied classical ballet, together with contemporary and modern Dance at Iwanson Academy, and worked during his education at the National Opera in Bayern, as well as at the National Stage in Münster, before joining the National Theater in Damstadt as a soloist and choreographer. Since 2004 Guido Markowitz has been working as a freelance choreographer and director. From 2007 until 2010 he was on the Board of Directors of LAG Dance NRW (Nordrein Westfalen)

In his works all facets are interrelated- in this way he successfully crosses generational boundaries while he weaves urban dance styles into his productions. His view of the times is formed by careful analysis- his impressions set his stage apart with the use of contemporary dance and new media.

He has choreographed for the Jochen Ulrich Company at the Country Theater Linz, for Darrel Toulon with the Ballet Stage Company in Graz, for the Ballet Baden and finally for the Saarland Country Theater Ballet. Markowitz is presently the resident choreographer at the Schauspielhaus Bochum.

His work “Desire,” well received by many national critics, was accepted in 2005 for showing at the festival “Art of Dance East and West” in Giessen, Germany and at the Chicago Dance Festival. His work “Snow Motion” premiered in January, 2006 and was quickly accepted at several festivals. In "Anime" (2008), he worked intensively with video. According to the publication KÖLNER STADTANZEIGER- “ the visuals, produced by Markowitz and his team with psychedelic effects through film and dance, are impressive and innovative.”

He choreographed also for the premier of the musical „the Black Brothers“ in Switzerland. Declared later- “probably the best Swiss musical…..” He further choreographed among others for the musicals „Tabaluga“ (also acted as producer), for “Triumph of Love” and for “the Wizard of Oz.”

Guido Markowitz takes the opportunity to work with young people whenever he can. With the choreography of “TAKE-OFF,” a whole series of works for the youth was started at the Dance Hall NRW, promoted from Dance Hall NRW together with the Rotary Club in Düsseldorf. Moreover, he choreographed and led a project involving 150 young people at the Itzehoe Theater. Through his work “Hammerzeiten” (“Fabulous Times”), produced for the Dance Hall, emerged the film “Fabulous Times- That’s Who We Are.”

Guido Markowitz was nominated for the Faust Prize in 2011 and 2012.
2014 his work CAGE and DAHEIM are selected to the National contest of the Berliner Festspiele
His work “Wild Times” was chosen nationwide in 2009 by the Jury of the Cultural Educational Initiative Foundation of the countries “Children to Mount Olympus,” to open the Congress of the “Children to Mount Olympus,” and was promoted to Berlin to feature in the Congress of Children and Youth Foundation.
