S R & C o m p a n y is a freelance, independent and self-financed contemporary dance community since 2008.
We develop project-related contemporary choreographies and dance performances for Berlin dance scene's events
as well as for in-house productions.

S R & C o m p a n y is an encounter of dancers, choreographers, musicians and visual artists to merge individual work.
The common subject?
The engagement with ourselves, the human being, its downs and ups;
to cause thoughts, to bother, to become concerned about things.

We strive for intensive and interdisciplinary cooperation with other artists. For quite a time now we are accompanied by the photographers F a r i F o t o a l i s t and H e n r y k W e i f f e n b a c h.
There is a deep artistic relationship with the musicians of Theatrical Rock BandT h e B a r S i n i s t e r.
Furthermore we work on cooperative projects with the percussion band F r i e d d r u m s, with cameraman J a v i e r M o y a, sculpturist and metal-artist P e t e r S c h ü t z e, visual artist S a n d r a D i c k, wo designed the stage setting for our production Haut in 2016, cellist M u n s h a and W E R K . S T A T T . 4 4.
There is a strong connection to Eschschloraque Rümschrümp and its serie of events Bande à Part.
