She makes fun of life, where everything is illusion, bringing chaos, storms and freedom, no longer afraid of living and taking chances. Iconoclast and sophisticated she freed herself from the past, like an old woman masked as an infant. There are pictures without sound that become strong and positively deafening through body astraction. A vertical line that clarifies a thousand questions with no answer about the immaterial side of life. Together they briefly talk, ganz kurz.Marie Zechiel is a concept artist whose main form of expression is movement. that is seamlessly translated into stage, film, photo and performance work. This is the portfolio of Marie Zechiel – Dancer & performer based in Berlin.

As a movement director Marie Zechiel researches, develops and instructs sophisticated movement and body languages for a project aiming to create a suitable and unique physical narrative that raises production quality and authenticity.
In exchange with the director and team she proposes a motion vocabulary and choreography which fits best to the project’s vision, before she develops specific training methods and teaches all necessary skills to the performers (e.g. actors, singers, dancers, models, extras).
Especially on set with the production Marie Zechiel is a valuable motion supervisor to translate last-minute improvements as a movement director. Her skill-set includes underwater movement, cross-gendered movements and chorus work as well as doing choreographies in different dance styles.
Her field of work is specialised in camera productions such as commercials, music videos, photo shootings but also fashion shows and gallery spaces and the movement mentoring for artists. As a Choreographer and Movement Director Marie Zechiel has been involved in many music videos, commercial shoots and fashion shows. Clients include: VOGUECalvin Klein, Longines, Heidi Klum, Rammstein, Herbert Grönemeyer, Mercedes Benz.
