Julia Kraus is a dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm, Sweden at the moment. In 2011 she graduated from the Maslool, in Tel Aviv, Israel and has since then taken a Master in Directing for movement and performance based Art at Stockholm university of Arts as well as she at the moment is taking a degree Feldenkrais.  


Kraus did her dance education and worked as a dancer in Israel during 10 years with choreographers like Roy Assaf, Rotem Tashach, Maya Brinner, Adi Shildan, Dana Yahalomi, Irad Mazliah among others. During 2009 - 2010 she did the Matan project - artistic director Hillel Kogan run by Matan Organization and Batsheva Dance Company. 


As a choreographer she´s been doing both her own productions, internationell cooperations as well as creating for stages like RIKSTEATERN, ZEBRA DANS, SCENKONST SÖRMLAND, COMEDIA THEATRE, STRINDBERGS INTIMA TEATER, ORIONTEATERN. 

With an education in Dance, directing and dramaturgy Julia is a choreographer interested in interdisciplinary work, in video art, movement within a theatrical framing, and the melt point between media combinations with the body as start point.

She is interested in the Thinking body; the body- and movements take and perception of reality. Fantom bodies, consciousness, suggestive values and questions around identity are often present in her work. 

Her work often has a tragicomic language and moves through suggestive and poetic landscapes.
