Individual Dance Items

Item #1

  • Title:The Geometry of Separation (Excerpt)
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    In this work, I explore the problematic of exclusion – a fear that lies at the very heart of contemporary life. in collaboration with the film maker Mareike Engelhardt I create a fictional dialogue between dance and video, in which the dancer on stage and the dancer within the film encounter each other as their Alter Ego. Confronted with an outside world that is uninhabitable, i developed a language of mevement, both abstract and ironicial, in an effort to integrate into these unreal and psychological spaces.
