Tanja London is a performing, haptic, visual, and sound artist and a somatic educator based in West Oakland, CA.
She grew up in Germany, rummaging around in the beautiful widespread forests of the South. Querying social and hierarchical constructs is an integral part of who she is. Her work has an inclusive feminist viewpoint. She loves to explore sociopolitical and ecological discourses with her choreography. Topics such as the erosion of democracy inherited stress and trauma, the cultural impact of military technology, climate change, and resilience shape her theoretical and in-studio research. With her electronic sound projects, Tanja London, alias qualia-c, is dedicated to experimentation and exploring the somatic impact of vibrations, interconnection, and the edges of her emotions and thoughts. Besides a BA in Social Pedagogy and Contemporary Dance, she majored in Math and Art in German High School, holds an MFA in Modern Dance, including a Screendance Certificate, and is a certified STOTT Pilates® Instructor and Medical QiGong Practitioner.
