Theresia Dückelmann was born and grew up in Linz. While studying dance in London she got in touch with the genre „dance on screen“ and due to that made her first own dance video: „Rendez- Vous“. Since then she has studied sciene of theatre, film and media in Vienna, Austria and tried to experience the variety of film and theatre genres. She worked for cinema movies such as “Kuma” and „Cracks in Concrete“ (Both D: Umut Dağ), short and middle length films e.g.: „Papa“, documentary films, music clips, show reels, art and experimental films. Within those genres she was active in different positions, such as unit manager, production assistant, interior decorator, film distributor and as a director and choreographer herself. During that time she kept on being intrested into the dance film genre and so started to help organising the dance films at the RedSapata Tanzfabrik within the frame of Lange Nacht der Bühnen 2010 as well as for the Tanzhafenfestival 2013.
