Born in 1958 in Austria, academic degree at the University of Salzburg, studies in dance and acting in New York, Paris and Greece. Teaching at University of Salzburg, Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität. More then ever, after 15 years on stage, Editta Braun is walking her own particular line. With a good dose of sympathetic stubborness and serenely unconcerned with actual fads and trendy hypes, the poetic substance of her work is quite a plausible argument against the meanwhile obviously commonly accepted disenchantment of the world.
Editta Braun’s pieces are characterized by an expressive style, strongly influenced by theatre and performance, with humor and pathos often walking side by side, and are interwoven with elements showing a commitment to social criticism. Serious craftmanship, intelligent precision and an osmotic exchange between composition and choreography are the creative breath of the dramaturgical, choreographic and dance process.
"She is the Grande Dame of contemporary dance theatre 'Made in Salzburg'. For the past ten years we have been awed and touched by the stunning work of forty-two year old dancer and choreographer Editta Braun. Her curiously peeking behind the façades, her ability to luring the audience into a poetical parallel universe, with a boisterous and effervescent fantasy plus a wry and witty shot of social criticism here and there..."
