Crump dancer Lucia Matzke completed her Master degree studies in religion and culture at Humboldt University Berlin in 2021. In the context of her Master thesis, she did research in North Iraq on the topic of inter-ethnic-religious understanding and “Social Cohesion in Ninewa”. For some years, Matzke has been working as a freelance dancer and dance pedagogue. She teaches children and youths hip-hop and crump, also at the “motion*s Tanz- und Bewegungsstudio”, in cooperation with “Seitenwechsel e. V.” and in the context of the “TanzZeit Jugend Company”. In addition, she is an active member of the Berlin crump community and organises events on networking the urban dancing scene (urbandanceberlin). In future, she would like to develop her own dancing exchange programmes, which would combine her passions for dancing and for intercultural exchange.
