"A furiously accumulative and joyfully deleterious dance." Danse Canal Historique


Fabrice Ramalingom / R.A.M.a (Paris)  

09 – 11 Dec 2022Performance / Music

Frérocité, a French neologism coined by Lacan, is a combination of the words frère (brother), férocité (cruelty), and cité (city) - and already gives a first hint of the intellectual direction that Fabrice Ramalingom invites us to take. The vivre ensemble, living together. What are the different relationships between a brother in heart, a brother in arms, or a brother in blood? 25 people, including professional dancers and amateurs from Potsdam, enter the stage and slowly fill the narrow space one after the other. Step by step, the individualities disappear and a mass emerges that leads to chaos or even destruction. Can there still be a glimmer of hope, even humanity, in a world with limited resources, where people often pay no attention to each other or to the environment? What is our place? Frérocité calls for resistance - an artistic gesture like a manifesto, a warning, a cry, a wake-up call.

Afterwards on Dec 09: talk with the artists
