Bridge Markland

Bridge Markland the Berlin dance-theatre-performance-artist is a virtuoso of roleplay and quick-change. A chameleon that throws herself into many extremes, but isn’t merely limited to any one of them. She is an artist who effortlessly crosses all boundaries between sub- and high-culture, dance, theatre, performance, comedy and erotic-art. Her speciality is transgender-performance in which the audience can experience the change of woman to man (or vice versa). There is an erotic aura around her in all roles and genders. She has female and male sex-appeal far away from hetero- or homosexual limits and all inscribed identities.

Other focuses are: biographical performances, audience improvisation, site specific dance- and movement improvisation, writing, readings For many years she has been a thrill to her audiences performing on many national and international stages.
