Duet #4: sonâmesonhameçon Manufactured Series | Fabrice Mazliah

  • Wed 29.01.2020 | 19:30 - 20:30
  • Frankfurt LAB, Schmidtstr. 12, 60326 Frankfurt am Main
  • € 12 | € 6

In his “Manufactured Series” Fabrice Mazliah creates ten duets, each between a human and a nonhuman handcrafted body. In the fourth duet of the series, the performer Emilia Giudicelli is collaborating with a rod for fly fishing, which she has made herself. To fly fish is to deeply listen to the different ecosystems that the angler is in contact with and to tune into them. Catching a fish, is not an end in itself, but rather the confirmation of a successful “reading” of the water, the vegetation of the bottom and the insects of the
specific wet biotope. The fly rod can function as an extension of the human body but also as a lever made up of bamboo and line, in order to cast a tiny knot of a string fly onto the surface of the water. Flies are studies of the insects in all the different stages of development. They “play” the fish and queer the fly angler community, still mainly male-gendered, with their colorful garments of paillettes and feathers. In the end the question remains: who catches whom?

  • € 19 | € 9

Flags and banners are integral parts of our lives. They indicate affiliation with a football club in stadiums or represent a nation during a political event. They are skilfully twirled through the air and are used at sea and by the military to communicate signals and messages. And even though people can now communicate across great distances almost in real time thanks to satellites and broadband networks, flags retain their importance for transporting messages. In her new piece, Frankfurt choreographer Paula Rosolen therefore focuses on this much-ignored means of communication. She superimposes various semiotic systems of using flags to create a semiotic language of her own, which is meant to transmit messages between her ensemble of dancers and the audience. The theatre becomes an experimental ground on which fundamental principles of communication – including misunderstandings and misdirected information – can be playfully experienced which validity even in the age of binary code. No language skills required.

Animals on the Beach & my choreographed body … revisited | Deborah Hay

  • Mon 24.02.2020 | 20:00 - 21:40

  • € 25 / € 12

Deborah Hay is one of the most influential choreographers of the USA. She was a founding member of the legendary Judson Dance Theater in New York, which is considered the creative breeding ground of postmodern dance. Hay defines dance as a permanent process of learning and unlearning, which forces her to constantly reinvent her own practice. This double bill features two new works, thus offering the chance to get to know the versatility of this witty dance revolutionary. “Animals on the Beach” is performed by an outstanding cast of five dancers, including former Forsythe dancers Tilman O’Donell and Christopher Roman. The ensemble’s extensive knowledge enters into delicate dialogue with the intimacy and rigor of Hay’s performance practice. In her solo “my choreographed body … revisited”, Hay addresses her own fifty years of artistic practice, which have formed i.e. deeply choreographed her body. Reason enough for Hay to shake off the composition structures that shaped her solos in the past. No language skills required
