Wittmann was born in Switzerland and now lives in Toronto. Her name flickers between Claude and Claudia at the moment. Her work deals with body-based knowledge and addresses gender identity and transformation. Currently she is interested in accessing new internal sources that would be about political power. Wittmann's process is based on his butoh training with SU-EN (Sweden) and on his regular work with performance artist Paul Couillard. Wittmann has also taught workshop-performances and curated events in Toronto. www.claudiawittmann.ca
