Mathis Kleinschnittger studied contemporary dance at the university for performing arts in Frankfurt/Main and cultural studies in Potsdam. Choreographers and directors he has worked with recently include Isabelle Schad, Jessica Huber, Armin Petras, Philipp Saire and Kathrin Mayr.

Since 2012 he has developed his own choreographic work and received residencies including the entrance-funding of the City Berlin in 2015 and the Mentoring-program of LAFT Berlin (PAP).

His work begins with questions, examining the driving forces behind human beings. He takes familiar images and turns them into unexpected possibilities, inviting audiences to look differently at a world of assumptions and familiarities.
