"My work is not about finding an answer, but about searching a journey. It is created through questions, surrender to the very moment, deep listening, and trust. My responsibility as an artist is: to be willing, be aware, spread awareness, be in constant search, be curious, to care, to discover, and to create change."

Luisa Muhr is a multi-lingual, New-York-based multi- and interdisciplinary artist who works as a theater-maker, actor, vocalist, movement artist, director, choreographer, writer, and educator. She is the founder and curator of Women Between Arts at The New School, co-founder and artistic director of FENGARI Works, and part of the Theater Faculty at Yiddish New York. She is originally from Vienna (Austria) and has lived in Montreal for multiple years before coming to New York. Her work varies from experimental/avant-garde, movement-based, classical, Yiddish, puppet, to music theater, performance art, and solo and ensemble engagements as a singer/vocalist. Luisa has performed and collaborated with artists such as Ashley Fure, Kenneth Goldsmith, Frank London, Arturo O’Farrill, and John Zorn. In September 2018 she performed in the world premiere of Ashley Fure's "Filament" with the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center, as part of the vocal-movement ensemble Constellation Chor (lead by Marisa Michelson). In June 2018 she presented the world premiere of her experimental full-length solo performance-collage Anna at the Austrian Cultural Forum. Additionally Luisa performed at venues such as Baruch Performing Arts Center, the Jewish Museum, Judson Memorial Church, Park Avenue Armory, The Stone, Theatre for the New City, and the Albright Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo).
