I am a dance artist, performer and choreographer.

My name is Isabella Oberländer, I am a freelance dance artist and choreographer based in Limerick, Ireland. I’m originally from Mistelbach, Lower Austria.

I studied at the Institute for Dance Arts – Anton Bruckner University Linz, Austria. I have been guest teacher at the University of Limerick world academy of music and dance, the Firkin Crane in Cork and Dance Limerick.

My own work engages in choreographic frameworks that encourage the performer to be present and articulate in body and thought.

In addition to my own practice I curated “Mind in the Flesh: Female Bodies in Contemporary Performance” in conjunction with Dance Limerick in 2014. I am Chair of the Dance Strand at LACE, Limerick Arts and Cultural Exchange since 2015. I am a member of Limerick Dance Collective (LDC) since 2015, which facilitates open laboratories, peer to peer exchange and performance opportunities

I worked with Vivienne Dick on the experimental film “Red Moon Rising”, which premiered at London Film Festival 2015. Currently I am working with Amanda Coogan, “I’ll sing you a song from around town”, performance installation at Limerick City Gallery of Art.
