Oliver Zahn


Oliver Zahn (*1989) is a German theatre maker, working in various capacities both on stage and behind the scenes. Oliver Zahn’s performance essays circle around the ideas of nationalism, memory, history and corporeality. Based on extensive research made up of work in the field, in the archive and on stage, the resulting work is situated on the intersection of performance art and contemporary dance. Past works include SITUATION WITH OUTSTRETCHED ARM (on the history of the Nazi Salute), SITUATION WITH DOPPELGÄNGER (with Julian Warner, on cultural appropriation and minstrelsy) and SECOND ESSAY ON GYMNASTICS (with 7 collaborators) on performing citizenship in the history of the German Gymnastics Movement).
