Lukas Weiss

... from Biel, has been a passionate and professional dancer and choreographer for years. Lukas expresses himself verbally very deliberately and thoughtfully. He has a wide range of knowledge and loves to convey it as he dances, through his movements and dynamism. His search for his own Swiss roots led him in 2006 to the production of the dance theater piece «alpine tap». In «alpine tap» traditional dance forms from Central Switzerland (Bödälä/Gäuerlen) serve as his source of inspiration, which he then transforms into new forms of expression. For Lukas, dance means the creative interpretation of rhythm and music. In his percussive dance he communicates with his public not only through the visual aspects but also through sound. He loves to experiment with different sound effects – whether sandy earth or metal plate. He explores dance as a method of communication. At the age of 12 he began with Afro-Rhythm and when he was 15 he discovered tap dancing. He has continually expanded his knowledge and skills in workshops and has been the star guest on many large dance shows. Lukas has succeeded in spanning the arc of his talents from commercial dancing at galas, shows and company events to artistic performances on the stage. Lukas Weiss works with the best Swiss tap dancers: in his formation «Friends & Rhythm», for example, with «Les Frères Surbeck» (the Surbeck Brothers), Fabrice Martin and Sophie and Emilie Rupp, among others. All of these dancers have been Swiss and world champions in various dance categories many times.
