Felix Mathias Ott, was born in 1983 in Reutlingen and is now primarily a dancer and choreographer in the field of contemporary performing arts, working between Paris and Berlin. His father, a German actor, inspired in him from an early age a huge interest in theatre that Felix developed initially by studying stage design. He returned later to his performative roots with a course in Contemporary Dance, Context, Choreography at HZT Berlin in cooperation with UdK und Ernst Busch Hochschule in Berlin. Since then he works as a stage designer, video artist, interpreter (dancing/acting), author and choreographer all over Europe for his own creations or with artists like Krzysztof Warlikowski, Boris Charmatz, Yves Noel Genod, Maud le Pladec, Mathilde Monnier, Björn Melhus, Clement Layes, Tino Seghal….
His personal creation and research is supported for the next few years by the European “Apap” art platform. His work is also supported by HKF- Berlin and the Goethe Institut.
Felix’ work tends to create reflexive, more than conceptual, spaces where the spectator is invited to discover the and his/her unconscious world, to call for his own creativity in order to recreate one world with the fragments that the surrealistic writing of the artist proposes to him. Within this, Felix Mathias Ott wants to create a silent dive from reality into fiction, which wishes to contrast our contemporary ways to receive information, and get influenced all over with screamed out manipulative slogans.
