Ulrike Scholtes is social scientist, artistic researcher and teacher of movement and body awareness. In her research and education, she strives to emancipate bodily knowledge and skills, showing and letting people experience how body awareness can enhance their practices as researcher, artist and/or those practices that are usually not associated with using the body. For Ulrike, doing the body is part of any practice or profession and should therefore be attuned to the practices we perform on a daily basis. Foregrounding that feeling, moving or doing the body in any way does not come naturally, but is learned and trained, Ulrike teaches and writes about body awareness, sensitivity and bodily enskilment. 

 

Building on her research and year-long experience in a broad range of movement practices, she develops education and training programs for school and universities, interventions for companies, training for groups and trajectories for individuals.
