Two dance shows on family life during lockdown. Each piece is about 25 minutes long and was created by a dance artist together with her children. We show both pieces in a double performance. There will be a short intermission in between.

 

Family portrait 2: Fenster zum Hof

A family’s busy daily routine is suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Covid-19. Life will be different from now on, but how, exactly? The days slip by, full of the same old stuff: video calls, homeschooling, eating, sleeping … and then doing it all over again. Carving out a space for everyone to move around and live their life is far from easy. A Window onto the Courtyard lets mothers take part in their children’s games. Balloons fly about, becoming living creatures. The world of our imagination gradually seeps into the home. The indoor realm and the great outdoors become one.

Family portrait 4: Blicke

What and whom will we see when we next meet? We find ourselves wondering where other people are going, and whether it would be good to go along with them, or perhaps stand in their way.  Would they then be forced to cross a boundary in order to re-establish closeness? How well do we really know each other? Do we always know what other people need?

Mother-and-daughter team Janne and Coco Ramatou experiment how close you can really get when you dance together. Perhaps that last little bit of strangeness also serves as an impetus for us to keep discovering one another anew.
