Layton Lachman is a choreographer and performer based in Berlin. They create performances rooted in somatics, channeling experiential practices into immersive, sensorially complex worlds. Layton is committed to dance practice centered on group study and collective authorship — with the understanding that we are always collaborating with those who come before, after, and with us. They consider authorship within the premise of transmission, relation, alliance and ensemble. Their practice includes staged works, films, installations and audio/performative tours. In addition to artistic practice, Layton is also a teacher and independent curator, currently in the context of Lotto Royale 2023.
