Dance in public spaces

Studierende des MA Choreographie / HZT Berlin  

11 – 21 May 2022 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2022Dance / performance

The focus of the choreographic works of the six HZT students this year is interaction with passers-by, spectators, and residents – their movements in urban space and their bodies in presence. The choreographers explore the status of the de-socialised individual beings and technically interwoven users that we have become.

Care creates an orbit, a path of bodies that revolve around one another. This orbit articulates something about who we are, about how we unfold through relationships. In Orbit the boundaries between together and apart, guiding and being guided, holding on and letting go, inside and outside, turn into an ambiguous interlacing. A dance emerges from what is in between, in the magic of unpredicted rearrangements and co-matterings.

Within seconds investigates the sudden or predictable fracture in multiple moments of our life. It is clear that life consists of fractures, but what are alternative reactions of the body apart from a state of shock and frustration?

The fourth wall is porous, the view of the other is exposed, and the space is opened for a shared composition of sounds and movement. OtherMess provokes human connection through mutual listening and reveals our vulnerability as social beings.

How present is our body in virtual space? How absent are we if we only listen to someone on the phone? Posthuman Fragments tries the attempt to transfer the digital space into the real space of a car park. Two dancers and a musician question the fragmenta- tion of physicality and embodiment in our times.

All objects in the universe are made up of tiny particles that constantly undergo endless changes. During the performance one tries to steal a real moment of change, as it takes place, stretching and immersing time into a different perception. It opens up – while the sun goes down – at an intense look on the permanent transformation of bodies and surroundings.

pleasure_in_the_breaking guides the audience into a space, a world, where an everyday chaos becomes tangible from an artificial distance and at the same time from microscopic proximity. Fine lines are drawn between apparent order and continuous deviation. Stability emerges and disintegrates in a restless investigation of the ephemeral. The piece invites the audience to become part of this space of movement, sound, light, and projection and to co-create one's own experience in it.
