Gary Joplin

Choreograph

[This text has been translated electronically] After working as a dancer for ballet companies in the USA, Basel, Mannheim and Heidelberg, Gary Joplin began to develop his own pieces as a director, choreographer and seminar leader at the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Theater Heidelberg and Theater Freiburg, among others. At the latter, he has been realising youth projects for many years, where he focuses on human development, one's own body awareness and self-reflection. He also focuses on dance programmes for people with disabilities or diseases such as Parkinson's and cancer. In current projects such as »The 3rd Box« and »Somewhere in Between«, Joplin also deals with questions of gender identity and the third sex.
