in two parts

Never tangible, always in motion, only readable and recognizable in its movement, time is the trickle, trickle, coagulant against which our vitality rubs against its finiteness.

In these two performative interventions the question is: What happens in the change between presences and absences, the role reversal of the seeing and the seen, the moving and the immobile, the impulse and the resonance space?

Frictional forces are examined and brought into contact with the places and people taking part in the performance.

Here we hear

Two bodies and one line

the music becomes visible, the gestures become audible.

It is a thunder, a creak, the raging torrent of a river, the rush of the sea.

They are casual entanglements between our bodies.

A subliminal language, a story about us.

Suddenly we become what we are doing, we transform ourselves into the sound itself.

Concept, choreography and performance: Aurora Magrí and Chiara Leonardi

lost in translation

Gestures communicate. Our body communicates through gestures.

Every gesture is seen as an expression of an intention, we assume meaning - and accordingly we read or interpret gestures all the time.

In lost in translation, 3 performers meet. They try to communicate through their movements/gestures. But what do we "understand" about each other?

We read each other and yet we only read within the framework of our own experience.

late for laundry, again

"late for laundry, again" is part of an ongoing artistic research project in which Iria Arenas explores the meaning of boredom today. Together with two performers, she examines how the mind functions in this particular state. In her concept she uses performance art and choreography in the broader sense as a framework for the discussion. The audience is invited to take part in a journey into the unconscious that is accompanied by live electronic music.

A continuation of the SNEAKY LEAKS series - short dance pieces in public places initiated by tanz * werk Kassel

Two performers explore the narrowness of common gender stereotypes in relation to concepts of body, strength and risk. They use the movement language of the male * dominated art of locomotion parkour to put antiquated concepts of the female * body and its social function to the test.

I meet you in a place that is continuously changing. Memories of encounters leave traces in space and in our body memory. Expectations and boundaries are constantly negotiated, met or not, or reshaped. The ground we stand on catches us when we can't for each other. Thrown back into our own self-responsibility, we open a space in which we approach a more honest encounter, each moment anew.

Around the corner ... “- Sneaky Leak no. 3

Around every corner a new experience, a new story, a new picture, overlaid with memories, previous ... What do I bring with me and what of what was before me moves me now?

A place explored, measured and moved by 4 dancers. Filled with different perceptions and movements. Unique in expression.


Different facets come together to create a new picture.
