Manuel Pelmus studied dance in Bucharest, Romania, and performed extensively with the Romanian National Opera, Romanian television, and the state opera in Cluj, before spending several years performing with the Hamburg Opera, touring throughout Europe, Asia, and South America. Pelmus began creating his own works in 1997, and include Outcome, Common Grounds (a collaboration between Pelmus and two choreographers from Norway and Japan), and Punct Fix, all of which have toured widely in eastern and western Europe and North America. Pelmus will bring Punct Fix to the United States in the fall of 2003.
