Dagmar Dachauer was born in 1988 in Linz/Austria.
She started dancing at age six and attended preparatory courses at both Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität and PerformDance until graduating from music highschool in Linz.
After her studies at P.a.r.t.s., for which she got the Austrian scholarship for dance studies abroad from bm:ukk, Dagmar worked with Dance/Performance Group T.r.a.s.h./NL for the piece “Safe Absence - Humanoid Trilogy, Episode 2“, which was awarded the Magnolia Prize at Kontrapunkt Festival/Poland.
Two collaborative productions followed. „Tonight I don’t take no calls ’cause I’ll be dancing“, a collaboration with Melanie Wirz, Filine Volkmann and Katja Scholz has been supported by and presented at Festival FACES in Hamburg, Germany.
Together with a multidisciplinary collective, consisting of her (dance, choreography, voice), Philipp Mayer (voice, composition, sound), Sebastian Pirch (projection mapping, new media), Viktor Delev (new media, film), David Maier (acting, writing) and Ralph Mothwurf (coaching), she realized the crossdisciplinary piece „KrazMan“ in Berlin, Vienna and Andorf.
