After training as an actor and dancer in Buenos Aires and attending numerous master classes, Argentinean Daniel Goldin, born in 1959, came to Germany in 1987. He became a member of the Folkwang Tanzstudio and danced as a guest with Tanztheater Wuppertal (under the direction of Pina Bausch).

Between 1993 and 1996 Daniel Goldin worked as a freelance dancer and choreographer and has been the dance theatre director of the Städtische Bühnen Münster since the 96/97 season. Daniel Goldin began his choreographic career in 1982.

Goldin’s work identifies him as a border crosser between cultures: his choreographies are influenced by his South American origins, his Ukrainian-Jewish ancestry and his work in Germany.

His style is essentially influenced by German expression dance, which he learned about through Mary Wigman student Renate Schottelius in Argentina. Through his studies at the Folkwang Tanzstudio he expanded his stylistic repertoire to include the unmistakable Folkwang style. His body language has something deeply human about it, expressing sensations and states of mind in all naturalness.
