Chiara Bartl-Salvi, * 1995 in Salzburg, studied at the Friedl Kubelka School for Artistic Photography from 2014 to 2015, and at the Friedl Kubelka School for Independent Film from 2016 to 2017. In 2021, she completed her studies of Art and Digital Media under the guidance of Constanze Ruhm at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
She works as a visual artist and choreographer, focusing on performance art and exploring the nature and possibilities of movement and the boundaries where it transitions into silence. She approaches the medium of dance through a symbiotic combination of movement and sound.
In 2022, she was awarded the Start Scholarship for Music and Performing Arts from the Bmkös as well as the Scholarship for Body and Performance Practices from Tanzquartier Wien. She also participated in the Mentoring Program Art at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. In addition to her own artistic and choreographic projects, she worked as a performer for various artists and theater productions, including Donna Huanca (Piedra Quemada, Lower Belvedere, 2018-19), Malin Bülow (Elastic Still Lives, Fotogalerie Wien, 2020), Willi Dorner (Tanzkaraoke, 2021), and Kompanie Freispiel (Spiel auf Zeit, Dschungel Wien, 2022).
