They shine, rattle, are cold, they don’t even move – and yet these things exude a great fascination. Everyday kitchen helpers are often just as exciting for children to discover as their colourful toys. What could it look like if this world of things came to life, danced and sounded? In „DOOHICKEY („DINGSBUMS“)“, tanzfuchs PRODUKTION turns its attention to the metal everyday helpers in the kitchen and transforms them into a clattering orchestra: it rattles and sounds, clatters and jumps, gyrates and dances. Familiar objects suddenly develop a life of their own, become fellow dancers, mirror images. The three performers explore, feel and experience this world of things – and connect with them: they become extensions of their bodies, disappear under their clothes. Things, people and movements magically merge with each other, giving rise to entirely new hybrid beings.
