Thomas Lehmen (b.1963)

To ask for something important from another person has a special dimension and function in life. Such requests create the possibility for change; to respond affirmatively is to shift reality, in a direct and profound way.

Thomas Lehmen is a renowned choreographer, dancer and teacher from Germany. Zodiak’s Side Step Festival has presented his works Schreibstück in 2003 and Lehmen lernt in 2011.

Lehmen’s new piece „Bitte…” is a Finnish-German collaboration, created by five strong dancer-choreographers: Hermann Heisig, Eeva Muilu, Vera Nevanlinna, Liisa Risu and Thomas Lehmen himself.
