Oona Minoo is the artist name of multi- and interdisciplinary artist Una Wiplinger.

She studied Rhythmics at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna (a transdisciplinary field of study in the areas of music and movement/dance), with a special focus on classical piano and singing. At the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, she followed her curiosity in experimental approaches and her genre defying ideas at the Master for New Audiences and Innovative Practices. Una continiously follows training at professional dance centres like Henny Jurriens Studio in Amsterdam and Tanzquartier in Vienna. Here she finds further inspiration in contemporary dance for her artistic practice.

After several years of working as a musician, dancer and performer with different choreographers and theater/performance companies, Oona Minoo has started focusing on her own work as an interdisciplinary performance maker. In a relaxed atmosphere, she creates delicate pieces about current and timeless human issues.

Not letting herself be limited by borders of genres, Minoo experiments with the relationship of different media and blends together her artistic backgrounds in music, dance and theatre. Central to her is the contact with the audience and making art accessible to everyone.

In her solodebut Frau mit Flügel/Vrouw met Vleugel Oona Minoo approaches the piano with her entire artistic personality, not only musically, but also bodily and verbally. In an intimite atmosphere she makes her piano compositions accessible, even for the audience not used to the "classical concert".
