About us

Overhead Project stands for performances between contemporary circus and dance – two languages that allow different perspectives on the human body and a multidimensional approach to space and architecture.The company, directed by choreographer and circus artist Tim Behren, evolved from an intense acrobatic duo work with (former) co-founder Florian Patschovsky. Today, the artistic core team consists of composer Simon Bauer, visual artist Charlotte Ducousso, performer Mijin Kim and other long-time performers and experts from various fields.

Numerous productions and several guest choreographies for city theaters with large ensembles have been created. The company has received several (inter)national awards and choreography prizes for its works, most recently the Tabori Award 2022 from the Fonds Darstellende Künste.
