Antonia Baehr is a choreographer. Her work is characterised by a non-disciplinary approach. She works with various partners, often in form of a kind of role-playing: each person is alternately host and guest for the other. In 1994, she co-founded the Berlin-based performance group “ex machinis”. In 1996, she received her diploma in Film- and Media Arts under Valie Export from the University of Arts Berlin and was awarded a DAAD-grant and a Merit Scholarship for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. There she completed her MA in Performance under Lin Hixson.
In 2000, she moved back to Berlin, where she lives and works. She was co-organizing “Labor Sonor”, experimental music and performance series, at KuLe from 2001 to 2003, and co-hosted the festival “Radioriff” that took place in December 2003 at Ausland, Berlin. From 2006 to 2008, Antonia Baehr was “artiste associée des Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers” in France and in 2008, published her book Rire / Laugh / Lachen. Antonia Baehr works e.g. with Lindy Annis, Valérie Castan, Sabine Ercklentz, Antonija Livingstone,  Arantxa Martinez,  Andrea Neumann and William Wheeler. She is moreover the producer of horse whisperer and dancer Werner Hirsch, musician and choreographer Henri Fleur, as well as of composer Henry Wilt..
