GREEN

GREEN

What do humans and plants have in common? At first glance we are very different, but if we look more closely, we have a lot in common: we grow, need the sun and are thirsty. Plants and humans both need to breathe. What does the breath of a plant feel and sound like? What is the rhythm of their movements? What does it sound like when plants touch each other? Do they talk to each other? The performers immerse themselves in the cosmos of plants and explore the way they move and unfold as they grow. Composer Jörg Ritzenhoff takes us into the sound world of plants and makes us experience the sounds of their growth.

“GREEN” is the first part of the series SPIELRÄUME, which deals with the interweavings of HUMAN-NATURE-ANIMAL-CITY-RURAL AREAS. The focus is on flora and its interrelations with humans. How do we perceive the green world of plants? Where else is “green” to be found? And how intertwined are we in this green world? All these questions resonate when the three performers explore the plant world before the eyes of the audience. Finally, “GREEN” will also be produced green and is dedicated to the topic of sustainability in the work process.

PREMIERE: FOXX

PREMIERE: FOXX

Foxes have many faces: they are cute and cunning predators, shy and curious at the same time. Free like a cat, but also sociable like a dog. They live in the forest as well as in the city, in the ice and in the desert. They move between worlds, adapt and conquer new places. They have many characteristics and many habitats. They sneak and jump, they bark and sing. They are considered clever, sometimes even magical. Never only good or only bad. They are at home everywhere and there are stories and fairy tales about them in all cultures.
The dance parable “FOXX” follows the trail of this versatile animal. Three performers immerse themselves in the world of the fox and test its abilities, movements and characteristics. They jump and move between the European Reineke and the magical nine-tailed Japanese Kitsune, between fairy tales and manga, traditional dances and K-pop. It will be colorful, fairytale-like, shrill and at the same time shy, sensitive and mysterious.

Choreographer Barbara Fuchs follows the tracks of the animal that gave her her surname. Composer Jörg Ritzenhoff creates atmospheric electro-acoustic soundscapes, Arthur Schopa creates a lively video image layer that interacts with the performers and playwright Charlotte Luise Fechner has written a fox parable for the production, which is also reflected vocally in FOXX.

Out/foxed About the fox-human-being


A musical dance poetry for humans and foxes from 6 to 99 years old

Three performers are on the trail of foxes, because they are the success model of the future. They are looking for them and want to become like them. What makes foxes so cunning? So attractive and also mysterious? Can we humans become like them? Can we learn to listen better to urban foxes?

DOOHICKEY

DOOHICKEY

 

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.

The Four Seasons

The Four Seasons

Spring, summer, autumn, winter – gentle birdsong, summer thunderstorms, rustling coloured leaves, clashing frost. Playful and dreamy, the well-known music by Antonio Vivaldi is reinterpreted for children by choreographer Barbara Fuchs together with the Braunschweig State Orchestra. The cycle of life, of nature, which looks and feels different in different parts of the world – sometimes winter is cold, elsewhere it is warm – was captured with all its wonders and mysteries in Vivaldi’s music over 300 years ago. Just like nature and the environment, human life is shaped by rhythms and cycles, which are explored in this dance piece through Barbara Fuchs’ creative language of movement.

Premiere 6 October 2023, Staatstheater Braunschweig
