Simone Aughterlony is an independent artist based and supported in Zurich and Berlin, working predominantly in dance and performance contexts.
Over more than decade, Simone has been devising and producing choreographic works. As a performer she has worked with artists such as Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods, Forced Entertainment and Jorge León, Phil Hayes amongst others. In 2015 Supernatural, a collaboration with artists Antonija Livingstone and Hahn Rowe premiered in American Realness while in the same year the performance project Uni * Form, devised by Jorge León and Simone premiered at Zuercher Theater Spektakel. Alongside an extensive tour of these works and the Biofiction Trilogy of which Supernatural is the third part, she is currently working with Jen Rosenblit for Everything Fits In The Room, a commission from HAU Hebbel am Ufer and Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
Engaging with alternative forms of kinship, inside her process new constellations of family emerge as possibilities for reconfiguring a culture of togetherness that foster both familiar and unknown quantities. Her works playfully compose with representation and its saturation, seeping into and embracing the phenomenology of mis-recognition and the absurd. Simone approaches the performance genre as a world building practice where she navigates the contradiction between the domination of desire alongside the agency of all elements.
