May Zarhy / MAMAZA | Next to Near

May Zarhy, member of the choreographer trio MAMAZA (Tel Aviv/Berlin/Frankfurt), returns to Mousonturm to develop parts of her new production NEXT TO NEAR in residency. Together with composer Tian Rotteveel and choreographer Hermann Heisig, specialist for slapstick and absurd timing, Zarhy will be dealing with a central paradox of today’s day and age: thanks to video telephony and budget airlines, we feel connected to people far away, while at the same time alienating ourselves from our immediate surroundings. In an open rehearsal, the trio will provide some insights into their working process and their exploration of the absurd relationship between distance and intimacy.
