by Falk Richter and TOTAL BRUTAL | World Premiere
Text and Direction: Falk Richter
For his new project, Falk Richter is working with Nir de Volff and his dancers from TOTAL BRUTAL company for the first time. Various artistic signatures, passions and experiences of the performers come together in an open, improvisation-based rehearsal process. Falk Richter’s texts tell stories of people whose humanity is increasingly giving way to a post-human condition of being undead. They are scattered city warriors in survival mode, prepared to commit any extreme act in order to feel that they are alive; people who are infinitely replicated, self-styled beyond recognition in online profiles, thoroughly scrutinised and monitored. People who are no longer certain: is this still my life or am I living a script? People who know everything about the next person and hanker for intimacy, yet shy away from the first contact. The figurative forms and patterns of movement in Nir de Volff’s choreography, which can rapidly switch from brute strength to closeness, intimacy and vulnerability, tell in a different language how this world leaves its marks on the human body.
Owners of the Tanzcard receive a discount of 20% of the regular price.
