Yasmin Schönmann is an artist who is interested in the human experience. The work she creates evolves around our emotional world , human connection and political and social issues. Schönmann believes that dance is storytelling -  creating movement means  creating a story or feeling through dance. Her artistic research is based on physical but human gestures and movement, as well as a clear story line.  In Schönmann´s work the body becomes a powerful instrument to communicate and to express emotions; a specific posture, or a single movement can offer a lot of information.

Our world consists of leaders and followers;

active and passive ones.            
Which group do you belong to?
This piece is inspired by human power dynamics. It tries to examine human dynamics and relationships to then imagine the worst case scenario. Are we actually divine and therefore meant to rule the world? Or are we in fact the most cruel of all animals?

This duet is inspired by family dynamics during a time where it´s common to think that we must have the same values and opinions in order to stay connected to one another. It´s a call to never stop communicating and listening to each other.
