Frank Lee Döllinger

As a child, Frank Lee took his first steps in breakdancing. Early on, he sensed a difference between a movement that carried passion and one that was “empty”. The question of what constituted this distinction unexpectedly led him into the depths of consciousness and his relationship to the body. For more than twenty years now, this has been the guiding question of his ongoing odyssey. In his contrasting life he succeeds time and again in the balancing act between artistic avant-garde and therapeutic work. Frank Lee is part of international artistic collaborations and one of the few who can teach dance from the perspective of an artist as well as that of a therapist.

“Frank Lee Doellinger stands out as the most sovereign when he moves. His movements herald a passion for dance in which the question of same or different simply evaporates.”
