Kajetan Uranitsch was born outdoors in a roman amphit-theatre in Gaeta, where he´s got his name from and was predestined to later follow the performing arts. He grew up on the countryside of southern Austria, where he could always play and move outside in the nature.
After studying environmental sciences at BOKU Vienna and CZU Prague, he started to train in contemporary dance and theater in Vienna. In 2016 he graduated at the Academy for Theater and Dance in Amsterdam (AHK) and since then he works freelance as performing and producing artist for various companies in Austria and the Netherlands, also focusing on young audiences.
His range of interests includes ideas of construction and deconstruction, formation and deformation, trash, pop, sound, human behaviour, our relation to space, each other and the universe.
On search of a constant dialogue between artist and audience he tries to find strategies of shaping mutual spaces of reflection, surprise, disgust and sometimes laughter.
