your membrane

PREMIERE: 10. November 2017

It is in a state of disorder. It staggers without direction. An isolated self, hovering in the air, navigates through a space that seems to decompose. This state could take a while to adapt, unable to make plans. Is this just a pause? And what comes next?

In the new piece by tanzfuchs PRODUKTION for two female performers, constellations are created in rooms, interspaces, transit spaces and hybrids between inside and outside.

The tent as a flexible and temporary shelter becomes a reflection surface over precarious conditions, constructions without a base, nomadic life forms.

The "tent" accumulates experience, and this experience branches out and ramifies itself through the tent wall,"says Vilém Flusser. In its prolongation a body of transition is created, which makes these states physically experiencable.

your membrane - a dance piece is the fourth part of the performance series RESPACE on the relationship between space, memory, sound and movement. Central to this is the examination of spatial concepts, temporal dimensions of spatial experience and the interweaving of acoustic and visual movement.

[…]The performance is about the edges of perception, seeing without seeing, hearing without listening. In addition, she throws up a lot of fog that the two dancers in red jackets spread everywhere, fans up and down rays of light in the haze, sets up semi-transparent tents into which someone crawls, while a film projection on the tent skin suggests two or more occupants. The performance makes itself semitransparent with all the hints, the missing representation. Foggy. This has something, even as a modest statement on art and society.[…]
