Lili M. Rampre (Slovenia) received her BS in Physics. She pursued her dance education and moved to Germany, where she obtained her MA diploma at HfMDK, Frankfurt. In the past her artistic engagements as a choreographer as well as a performer have been supported by various venues and institutions: Mousonturm (Frankfurt), Modul dance network, Hessische Theaterakademie, Pact Zollverein (Essen), tanzrecherche NRW, Akademie der Künste der Welt Köln, Kunststiftung NRW, tanz nrw festival, Tanzhaus NRW, where she is still active. After finishing a.pass, artistic research program in Brussels, Lili has continued with her choreographic practice in Research Cycle at P.A.R.T.S.
Lili M. Rampre is currently supported by Workspace Brussels, Fonds Daku and Pact Zollverein in Germany and is an associated artistic researcher at a.pass Research centre in Brussels, developing her long-term research on the artistic discourse and how we (on- or/and off-stage) co-create it as a cultural object.
Lili M. Rampre is researching strategies to highlight “off stage”; processes, practices and actors behind, off, under or above the stage. Lili’s research is focusing on power relationships and the dynamics of disparities in cultural capital (audience-performer, fan-star, producer-artist). Her work has often a role-reversal in its core proposal, ventriloquism of a kind, or unreliable narration. She tends to work from community to make a portrait of dissensus (is there a community, is it real?, portrayal of the limits) and is despite her sociologically coloured interest not employing quantitative methods of humanistic studies concerning analysis of the interviews with the audience which could provide a look into the language that said audience uses when they address the question of dance, but rather looks at the language as a live form that is used in the circle of (its) practitioners – dancers, dance teachers, art researchers and such.
