In this performance

The whys and wherefores are elusive – felix landerer

“A state of emergency. Loss of orientation and loss of sensation.

Disconnection from an environment we can influence
and which has a physical influence upon us.”

– Felix Landerer

wir sagen uns dunkles – marco goecke

“Marco Goecke’s creation for NDT 2 begins with encounters in the studio between the choreographer and the dancers. Their meetings appear unimportant, yet simultaneously they are more important than anything else; young, naughty and evil, playful and punky. “Today, my feelings belong to the dancers, more than ever before”, says Goecke. A blink of the eye, a glance, a seemingly fleeting gesture. Just a moment or a story? What remains is a tear on an eyelash that is fanned away. How do we get closer? A butterfly that remains a second before it flies away.

The sounds of Schubert and Schnittke meet those of Placebo, The Swan Song and Song To Say Goodbye. Then there are the rattling pants, its sound interfering with the music. Goecke: “The dancers understand me immediately. There is no limit, they want to be challenged.” They move fast, virtuoso, gesticulate in peculiar ways, unconscious yet self-assured, and – whether solo, in a pas de deux or larger group – they communicate in Goecke’s language, as if they had never learned another. Darkness Spoken, without words.”
– Nadja Kadel

FIT – Alexander ekman

“Do you fit? If so…. what is it you fit in to? Where do you fit? Where do you not fit? And why?

For me a fit is a form of harmony… there is a sense of ease and rightness. In a creation of a piece, it is all about placing the things that fit next to each other. Does this light fit with this skirt? Does this stone fit on this floor? Do these dancers fit together? Does this step fit here? Does this audience fit with this piece? Does this text fit on this paper? A puzzle…

But what about those pieces in the puzzle which do not fit… the pieces that provoke….

How do they effect the puzzle? Perhaps they become a driving force towards something else, inspiring and transforming the puzzle.”

– Alexander Ekman

Incomprehensible […] – hence perhaps the pale colors and the fog horn at the start of the composition of Christof Littmann – and that is exactly the beauty of the choreography.
