PATRICIA CAROLIN MAI (HAMBURG/TEL AVIV)
- WERKSTATT: BALAGAN BODY (EN)
The dance piece about bodies in states of emergency explores the body as an archive populated by memories. How do extreme states translate into the body?
BALAGAN BODY is a transnational Dance Production between Tel Aviv and Hamburg and deals with the „Chaosbody“ that explores the body as an archive populated with personal and cultural memories. A dancer from Tel Aviv and a dancer from Hamburg will investigate how people process the transition between exceptional conditions and normality in the long term. Interviews with people in Tel Aviv and Hamburg form the basis for the choreographic research. How do people deal with sudden attacks? How do extreme states translate into the body? What distinguishes a body that is exposed to a permanent threat from a body that lives in relative safety? Together with two musicians the four artists enter into a physical and acoustic dialogue and become an unpredictable, at the same time threatened organism – a delicate construction, somewhere between normality and emergency.
There will be a WORKSHOP on the play on Thursday, April 11 at 5pm.
Friday, April 12 | 9:30 pm
