Sam Scheuermann (1994, Tilburg) is an interdisciplinary performance artist from the Netherlands. Within the grey zone between theatre and visual arts, she is researching the performativity of space. Starting from the question ‘Who am I in relation to my surroundings?’, she analyses physical and social spaces and constellations. The codes in these ‘spaces’ have a big influence on the way we move, relate, position and present ourselves. By handling these codes visual and physical performances and installations emerge that question the relation between performer and spectator. From this new space she invites the spectator to reflect on their place in the here and now.
