Robyn Orlin (*1955, Johannesburg) studied at the London School of Contemporary Dance. With the aid of a Fulbright scholarship she gained an MA in fine art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She then created her works in South Africa, and is well known for reflecting the difficult realities of her country in them. Through the use of various media, such as text, video and objects, she examines a particular theatrical reality, which enables her to find a unique choreographic vocabulary. Her artistic works have been shown at international festivals and venues, for example at the Festival d’Automne in Paris and the Festival d’Avignon, in Liège, Brussels and Luxemburg. Robyn Orlin lives in Berlin, and was previously a guest of Tanz im August in 2002.
