Collaborations Interactive Interdisciplinary Interrellations

We accompany the dancer in her elongated rond de jambes as if we were witnessing some kind of rebirth. Oblivious to the reason of the sudden moment of self-realization, when the cold lighting contrasts with the dancer’s warmth, she captivated us in a magical instant of heart- stopping acting.

SCHWER WIE EIN-STEIN

A research of gravity gave 'SCHWER WIE EIN-STEIN' its form. Of interest was the kinetic chain of movement that arises, once we let the weight of the head guide. The piece talks about interdependency, waiting and expectations, humor and play. With Jungyeon Kim, it was performed at Alps Move 2011 in Lana (I) and Sommerwerft 2011 in Frankfurt am Main (DE).
