emerged in 2016 from the dance production “Spuren”, a commissioned work of the Sommerblut Kulturfestival, under the artistic direction of Gitta Roser.


The artistic approach is (physical) diversity, enabling new perspectives on contemporary dance and expanding it. Therefore, the ensemble consists of dancers with and without physical particularities of different ages and backgrounds. Since the foundation of the dance company, three full-length performances (Spuren, role on, like paper) have been created. An essential aspect of the artistic work is also to make performances accessible in a holistic way. Thus, audio description of the performances for people with visual impairments is an integral part of their work.

Mixed-abled dance training

In addition to artistic mixed-abled exploration through performances, another socio-political level is to give mixed-abled dance greater sustainability, continuity and visibility. Since 2021, the cie.nomoreless team has been offering a weekly mixed-abled dance training to consistently provide an exploration of different skills in dance.

Other formats

In 2021 and 2022, online research for blind and visually impaired people took place to open the digital dance space to this target group as well. In addition, cie.nomoreless developed the 3-day low-barrier online format “Perspective Shift” 2021 in cooperation with Dana Caspersen, the MichaelDouglas Kollektiv and accessibility experts, which combined choreography and conflict resolution. We also offer workshops in a variety of contexts.

Gitta Roser

Artistic Director / Choreography

Has worked in Germany and internationally as a freelance choreographer, dancer/performer and dance instructor since the late 1990s.
In her work, she is interested in the uniqueness of the human being and its body in its respective cultural context. In her artistic execution, she finds particularly appealing the approaches taken to particular and individual capabilities, and the different qualities of movement specific to each person, and of their use in expanding the context of contemporary dance. The mixed-abled work with the dance company DIN A 13 tanzcompany is a major focus of her artistic work. She has already led the troupe to a variety of countries (including Ghana, Brazil, Kenya, Senegal and Venezuela), where DIN A 13 tanzcompany developed artistic projects and launched new mixed-abled ensembles.
She has worked since 2008 as a performer at theater monteure, a theatre for children and teens, and can currently be seen as a dancer at Silke Z. resistdance. She has been a member of Barnes Crossing – Freiraum für TanzPerformanceKunst since 2014.
As a choreographer, she stages her own works primarily in the mixed-abled area. Working as choreographer and artistic director, in 2016 she staged the work Spuren, which was performed at the Sommerblut Festival. In 2017, this work resulted in the new Compagnie nomoreless under her artistic direction: a lay and semi-professional ensemble consisting of dancers of different ages, with and without physical particularities.


Christina Zajber

Teacher / Dance

Christina Zajber turned to the field of artistic creation as a result of her encounter with the ‘DIN A 13 tanzcompany’.
This was followed by other mixed-abled projects, including with ‘Projek Zukumpf’, the ‘Tanzmoto Dance Company’ and Niko von Glasow. Her interests include the realisation of artistic processes in their diversity and explorations of other forms of expression and possibilities. In the case of nomoreless, she particularly appreciates the group’s open-mindedness and impartiality. Dance is Christina Zajber’s great passion.

Denise Albert


Born in 1973, graduate sports scientist, long-time freelance dance artist and since 2014 teacher of gymnastics and dance at the Institute of Sports Science at the University of Wuppertal.

Creative ways of working in dance have great educational potential and can open up diverse and subjective approaches to dance movement. My aim is to explore and expand these approaches in order to reach people with different abilities, interests and learning styles and to inspire them for dance. People are like surprise eggs, you never know what's inside and what it takes to play together!

Born 1989, with cerebral palsy. Wheelchair user since 1998. ‘Dancing gives me a good way to balance out my everyday life, and even if rehearsals are late in the evening or at the weekend, I always feel good after a rehearsal.

Francisco Lara-González


Born 1966 in Seville, Spain. I work as a Spanish and French teacher in an international school (primary and secondary school) in Cologne and I am a textbook author for Spanish.
I have always enjoyed dance and movement, and I would say that I am a child of the ‘disco Music’ generation. To further develop my dance and musical side, I have been doing Capoeira (a Brazilian fighting dance) for ten years, and I have been learning flamenco singing and dance for two years.
Working with the ensemble cie.nomoreless, I can continue to realise my fascination and enthusiasm for contemporary dance.

Hartmut Misgeld


I was born on 21 May 1941 in Cologne, graduated from secondary school in 1960 in Leverkusen and graduated from the University of Cologne with a degree in economics in 1975. I have two grown sons. Dance came into my life in 1990 and became important to me. It began with fitness classes, grew to include tango (Argentina) as well as African and Afro-Brazilian dance. I had experience with dance theatre, performance and acting and came to dance theatre in 2011. I have been working as a performer with the Tanztheater in Bonn (GO.OLD Senior Company Gudrun Wegener) for a long time. The productions have been invited to several dance festivals.
I love expressing myself with dance and performance, communicating and touching people’s feelings.

Alfred Quarshie


My name is Alfred. I am 39 years old. I come from Accra, Ghana. I love music and dance. I began my career with a professional dance performance in 2009. My first dance performance was in Accra. Later, I had solo performances in Germany, Cyprus, the Netherlands and Spain. Dance gives me a way to express my emotions and to use my body to tell stories about how I feel in different situations. The smile I see when people watch me dance is why I dance. Dancing as a person with a disability is a challenge and exciting.

Tuula Simon


Born 1985 in Stade
For me, dance is becoming permeable, the transition from the inside to the outside and the in-between. Realizing that dance does not have to be performance and can be art instead has given me greater freedom. I am in search of enthusiasm and dream of a world without speciesism and gender-binary thinking. I derive strength and inspiration in wind and waves, in music and in silence.

Born 19 October 1948 in Lisbon, Portugal. Childhood and youth in Luanda, Angola; Lisbon, Portugal; Norfolk, Virginia (USA); and London, UK. In Germany since 1968.
‘I’ve always danced – at home, alone, for myself. When I dance, I am free and happy; I can often forget pain, sadness, worries and physical impairments. I can feel how music flows through my body; the ground under my feet, warmth, trust, harmony with myself; I can let go and be carried away.’ Experience to date: 2015 ÜberLebensMut, since 2017 Theater Demenzionen.

Jonas Kemper


For me, dance is an opportunity to use my body to communicate what lies beneath the surface. I have found dance through my love of music. Being born in Ethiopia, growing up in Germany and seeking my roots have been important to me. Discovering dance and theatre was the best thing that could have happened to me.
