Wild Schön und verdummt - Anna Maria Pahlke.jpg

It's on, the poop is already running!

“(the dog goes ‘woof’ and all dogs are ‘woofs’)”

But when you've sung a canon, you can make a wish, because then your heart is wide open. From the heart with pain, beyond all measure.

Someone called me for a while who always spoke in an incredibly boring way. He also regularly fell asleep while talking.

A man comes up the stairs...,

...this is the start of my third million!

O'ZAPFT ES. Grüß Gott und a toast to Gemütlichkeit and tradition.
Pretzels, white sausage and beer.
Why wait? Let's ring in the best time of the year early.
Everything can be forgotten, except dirndl and lederhosen. Decency has a duty of confidentiality.
The Gießner Oktoberfest 2024 opens its doors and barrels.
Let's climb onto benches together and sway until the morning comes or the last person fills their tankard.
Finally together again, blue and white checkered, turn on the pop songs and turn off the brains with a Maß with 5.8 - 6.4 per mille into our heads.
Be part of the Gießner Oktoberfest in June, so jung komm ma nimme zammen.

Nothing much to be said about it right now, it could be that this dance is a text being read in a peculiar way, a weird conversation, a self hypnosis practice through speech and breath, everything might as well turn upside down into something completely else, but I invite you to sit together, like a fool, like a mountain, around us darkness and some painted flowers.

 

The title of the work are words borrowed from the Pajé Davi Kopenawa Yanomami, from his book The falling sky.

NERVE ENDINGS

EYES - Tolja Haß.png

NERVE ENDINGS engages with queer discourses about neurodiversity, (invisible) disability and the human brain. NERVE ENDINGS wants to take the audience onto a journey through the human brain and show different experiences of neurodivergent people. Neurodivergence involves differences in brain structure, connectivity, and neurotransmitter function. Neurodivergence means to not fit into the normative capitalist way of thinking, working, and living. Ableism, even though it is now acknowledged as a category of discrimination, was only recently included in common discourses and institutions. Especially the educational system is still very far behind when it comes to accessibility. Not only are the spaces physically still very exclusive, but the way in which humans are supposed to learn and process information shows the system's ableist attitude towards bodies and brains that do not function in the way the system intended. Disabled and neurodivergent people often do not have the same access to opportunities and institutional support as able-bodied people. Unfortunately, our (educational) institutions are still deeply interwoven with capitalist, colonial and neurotypical structures. NERVE ENDINGS tells stories about people and experiences that don’t fit into these normative systems.

NERVE ENDINGS is a soft dive into the synapses and connections of the human brain and wants to create a mesmerizing, galactic cosmos which connects with the audience through the collective experiencing of various senses.

Flow through you 

The duet is a strong choreographic work where the dancers seem to go through a kind of ritualistic trance. The circular themes that are discovered through their movement and setting of stage encourage a flow of energy which allows a state of transmutation. In a corporate and concrete world there is little room for attention to the power of rituals and what they are capable of doing for one’s emotional, psychological and passionate state. In most cultures this practice is missing so we invite the audience to experience this state of catharsis and question what a ritual might be like for them. Through this duet there is an appreciation and awareness gained to the self and how to let go of old energy that no longer serves us and embrace the new, surfing the ebb and flow of life within.

This work in progress was born as a project for the course 

Replicas and Resurrection offered by Livia Piazza.

Imagined by Santiago Mariño, kemelo sehlapelo, Isidora Gazmuri and with the support of Livia Piazza; the central idea of the project is to reflect about the concept of resurrection in relation with cinema. Specifically, with the German movie "Fitzcarraldo" (1982, Werner Herzog) and all the crude implications that filming this movie had in Peruvian´s Amazonia, as well as its good reception in the Europian cinema circuit. The work uses COPY as a resource for creation and also as a mean for resurecting something hidden in between the movie of "Fitzcarraldo".

THE NEW WHITE AESTHETIC 

IMG_20240124_221601_290 - Kemelo Sehlapelo.jpg

THE NEW WHITE AESTHETIC is a dance performance that re-enacts imagery of canonical marble statues. Using the movement practice of ballet - understood as an ethnic dance of the Indo-European diaspora - in developing a practice of dilapidation or "butchered ballet", the bodies traverse the space. Transitioning from image to image, they dance an erased polychromatic history, embodying the crumbling of the empire and of the new white aesthetic.

Traces of a body 

TM24_edited.jpg

In 'Traces of a Body' Rose Marie Lindstrøm explores the question of how the transformations and events of life that are inscribed in the body can be visualised and what traces are left behind by bodies in a ghostly presence. The choreography focuses on the hair and circular movements, which become visible as paintings on silk and touch on the cycle of life from rebirth to death. With endlessly circling head movements without revealing the face, the performer reaches a hypnotic trance state that invites the inner ghosts to dance with the body and revitalise it as a living archive. In doing so, she confronts the apparent contradiction between the feeling that the body vessel is merely a shell for memories and emotions that can only be inadequately shared, and the actual potency of bodies and voices.
