Fabulous / Erden
von Tanzkomplizen, HZT Berlin and Offensive Tanz
age 9 and over / year 4 and above
Dominique Tegho and Veronika Heisig are studying choreography at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz (HZT) Berlin and will soon complete their master’s degrees. For TANZKOMPLIZEN they are dealing for the first time with working for children and young people and are both developing an approx. 30-minute piece.
A swarm swirls through the air and lands softly, many-legged creatures hop and tumble away, and cheeky creatures dance in circles. In “Fabulous”, the dancers are constantly transforming. Who and what can they be? They appear and disappear, transform into each other and merge with their surroundings. They can be one and two and many at the same time. They are always trying out new bodies and forms, and in each there are new powers and abilities, but also challenges to explore.
Choreography and Dance: Veronika Heisig und Manuel Lindner
Stage and costumes: Mina Purešić
“ERDEN: becoming earth”
How can we inhabit a damaged planet? In “ERDEN: becoming earth”, the dancers connect with each other to promote ecological reconciliation. To do this, they come into contact with the skin of the earth: the rocks. Singing, humming and dancing together – with each other and with the rocks – helps to survive and find new ways of living together for a more sustainable future. “ERDEN: becoming earth” is a piece that focuses on the habitability of the earth and emphasizes the relationship between humans and all other beings.
