my name is Velia Malika Hahnemann. I do dances. Sometimes alone, sometimes with other people, who do dances too or who do music.

I do dances, without any human eyes seeing it, still, every move gets imprinted in the sphere, where everything, that ever happened is imprinted.

I also do dances, while others are witnessing the movement and stillness in between.  Sometimes I guide other people into moving themselves.

When I move, I like to tap into the very moment. I like to improvise, with movement, with words, with gestures, with sounds.

I am a dancer, an ambassador of the moving body.


Most of the time I live and work in Kassel, Germany.
