What is "artevale"

Experiencing yourself in your own movement - dance art beyond the ordinary - that is artevale.

artevale is also THE address for artistic mask making in Bremerhaven - art of the bizarre kind!

With my workshops and projects I invite you to discover your own movement.

Dance what moves you!


Who is "artevale"?

I am Kathleen Ann Barberio, artist and educator, freelancing since 2003.

As a dancer I have devoted myself to dance theater, especially Butoh. In my performances I often use dance masks from my own workshop.

I call my dance style "Butoh-esque MaskDanceTheater".


In my dance offers I also put an emphasis on dance theater / Butoh, e.g. every 1st Friday of the month with "I dance what moves me".


Another pillar of my work is Pilates mat training. You can sign up for an ongoing course or get to know the prevention offer.


Last but not least, I offer you the wide spectrum of mask art: from mask construction to mask play to mask dance. Make the experience and find the enchantment in it!
