Amelia Emma Forrest is an emerging performance artist based in the studios of TATWERK | Performative Forschung in Berlin. After finishing formal training at Rudra-Béjart and working as a soloist at the Baltic Dance Theatre, she moved to Berlin to journey into the world of butoh in the west. Simultaneously she started a deeper exploration into somatics. She puts this generously shared information into practice by creating and collaborating within theaters, club spaces and club nights. Amelia is also a co-director of Radiant Love along with Byron Yeates and Jochem Van Bruggen. Radiant love is a rave, label, art and performance collective and has a monthly radio residency on HÖR.
