KAREN

SIEBER

CHOREOGRAPHER

DIRECTOR

about

As an award-winning choreographer, Karen Sieber fashions stories of dance and movement for stage and screen. By seeking truthfulness, both emotionally and conceptually, Karen finds unique and stylish ways to tell a story. Her work and approach involve layering concepts, spirited movement, and raw imagery to tell stories of depth.

Speaking four languages fluently, Karen was born and raised in Switzerland.  Her training spanned from Zurich Dance Theater, London Studio Center (England), Raza Hamadi's Ballet Jazz Art (France), Matt Mattox’s JazzArt (France), to assisting Broadway greats on shows such as Some Like It Hot (starring Tony Curtis); Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (starring Millicent Martin); A Christmas Carol (starring Kelsey Grammer) and many others. She enjoyed an illustrious dance career before turning fully to choreography.

Karen most recently choreographed Cabaret and the world premiere play, Summer Session with the Bones Brigade for Coachella Valley Repertory (CA);  the world premiere of the musical Holmes, The Legend in Prague (Czech Republic); the re-imagined production of Into The Woods at Theatre Under The Stars (Houston); the Guggenheim Works & Process series (NYC); and the dance film-series ResistDance. Karen has choreographed premiere productions that have played Off-Broadway, Broadway Workshop productions, as well as many International productions and companies.

Karen most enjoys finding and creating the unexpected. As a collaborator, Karen is perceptive and honest through her interactions with other creatives and strives to always be a positive force in the room.
