Broadway Dance Lab is thrilled to welcome Karen Sieber to Lab Cycle 3. Karen approached BDL asking us for help finding space and dancers with which to create. We are excited to be able to offer her that very thing.
Born in Switzerland, Karen began her career with Zurich Dance Theatre (CH); London Studio Center (UK) and Matt Mattox’s JazzArt (France) before coming to New York City. She enjoyed a successful dance and acting career in both the US and Europe before starting to choreograph.
Karen is the Resident Choreographer for A2K Productions, LLC(www.a2kproductions.com), a New York City based theater production company with a division for film and television. A2K Productions specializes in creating works that cross over into various genres and uses theatre as a platform for current debates or issues that are not openly debated. The company is developing the soulful pop rock musical, Lighthouse, which Karen is choreographing and helped co-create.
Karen is the Associate Choreographer on All That Glitters, the new Liberace Musical, which finished a Broadway workshop in NYC and is slated for an out of town try-out in San Francisco and, most recently, she was commissioned to choreograph a Gershwin Ballet, Passage, for the European dance company Weave Dance Collective.
In New York City, Karen also served as choreographer on the original Off-Broadway children’s musical Quiet Clock, The Musical; Zarra, Unmasked At Last (37 Arts-starring Chita Rivera, Assoc.); and Broadway’s 27th Annual Easter Bonnet Competition (Minskoff Theatre, Assoc.). Film and regional credits include the Hallmark Entertainment film A Christmas Carol: The Musical, which starred Kelsey Grammer (Asst.); Goodspeed Musical’s Very Good Eddie (Asst.); the world premiere of TUTS’ Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (Asst.); and Nice Work If You Can Get It, Cabaret, Les Miserables, Guys and Dolls, Spamalot, and Legally Blonde at Weathervane Playhouse.
Karen also worked with Broadway choreographer Dan Siretta on the re-development of the First National Tour of Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis; and has provided choreography for numerous stage and film industrials in the US and Europe.
