Finally spring arrived in Vienna and we are ready for new explorations.
do not – touch
These days space has a high price. As a precious resource it is subject to calculation and distribution. A space challenges two people, together they challenge a space. They each know where they want to go. The question is: how to navigate and position themselves in space together?
The goal is finding ways to negotiate and exploring paths to share this space. Going through the interactive choreographic process, the dancers activate exciting dynamics which stimulate them on the way. As they move forward, the break new ground. They change positions and reinvent themselves.
At first sight the bilateral exchange between the two, which manifests itself in various forms, is an emotional one. But beyond that there is a fundamental exploration of one’s own being and doing. Based on individual actions and gestures which were developed separately as a choreographic groundwork, they also playfully reflect on endless contingencies and facets of the individual. The dancers discover a deeper form of mutual understanding and empathy sharing the same space and macro-level of observation.
