Being restricted – and yet free. Immobile in body – flexible in mind. The artists Jean-Dominique Bauby (writer), Ezio Bosso (composer) and Frida Kahlo (painter) were each physically limited in one way or another and still managed to break out of their immobility with the help of art. With their biographies, their art, and their strength, they provide the inspiration and the starting point for this dance performance.

“Immobilità” shows a collage of impressions and images on the subject of physical limitation and the mobilizing potential of art. The dancers act in a black and white world of thoughts from which they cannot break out. The colours of the video installation, which was developed with the help of aleatoric techniques, offer a colourful ray of hope. An interplay of emotions of inner turmoil and tension is created. The illustration of heaviness and lightness of our imagination.

The uncertain time of the pandemic has also influenced the creation process of the piece. It has made clear, we can feel immobility on an individual, social, on a physical or spiritual level. And yet, we can find joy in life in times of restriction and stasis. The certainty remains, no matter how constricted we feel, our creativity makes it possible for us to be mobile.

IMMOBILITÀ is a collage inspired by the biographies, vitality, strength and works of the artists frida kahlo, ezio bosso and jean-dominique bauby. i am fascinated by the ability to move and travel that these three artists had through their art without limits and restrictions, in contrast to their immobile bodies. in the word immobilità we find move and no-move. i choose these topics because i want it to speak about a duality from flow and restriction, and where do they come from? from our body or from our mind. we are living in a historical moment where our mobility is restricted but our creativity gives us the possibility to continuously be in flow.

_on the tracks of mary wigman

With “FORMA” we explore the liberating potential inherent in dance as an art form in the 21st century. Choreography, dramaturgy and musical composition are based on Mary Wigman’s concept of the body that has become an instrument and a mirror of the inner emotional experience.

In “FORMA” Mary Wigman’s artistic concept is updated and expanded. Starting from the self-bodily exploration of the basic emotions fear, anger, joy, sadness and shame – with creative media such as spontaneous writing and painting in different places – ways of liberating the body from domestication and reification to living movement and encounter are sought.

forma means to me: vessel of feelings. and so FORMA is primarily about the emotional quality of movement and body expression, and less about dance virtuosity.

Premiere8th of november, 2019, within the framework Of FrauenORTE in Bewegung, Lister Turm Hannover
artistic direction / choreographyMónica García Vicente
dancersEleanor Freeman, Lauren Anne Murray, Bettina Paletta, Loris Zambon

Three soloists, three choreographies, three spaces… and one composition. The theme: female creativity in art, politics and science. The place: three rooms in the Lister Turm, on different levels of the building, in which the three eight-minute solo performances are shown simultaneously. The audience moves from room to room, from level to level, and becomes, as it were, part of the overall performance. The choreography becomes a mediating instance between performers and audience, which is challenged to position itself again and again and to look for perspectives beyond the traditional view of a stage dance.

The viewers of the video “Move a Performance” can track down this aesthetic experience of the diversity of perspectives in the various body images and intersections and perhaps even empathize with them.

This artistic work on the myth leads to a reflection on the existential human themes of love, life and death, sexuality, freedom and violence.

When “speaking about Carmen” with words, gestures and sounds, the clichés liquefy. New perceptions, insights and forms of expression emerge beyond the stereotypes. Dance, text and music are equal and moving elements of the choreography, which are in a permanent dialogue on stage – in search of alternative, liberating stories about the myth of Carmen.

Premiere21st of september, 2019, Kesselhaus Hannover

The Kesselhaus is an inspiring place for an artistic experiment on the role of women in industry. The performance of movement, rhythm and sound conveyed to the audience the arduous circumstances of working in dirt, soot, heat, confinement and noise. The performers transformed the boiler house into an instrument, from which the musician was even able to elicit entire melodies, and into a participatory space of experience in which the audience had to position itself independently in relation to the three dancers in order to find a perspective.

the kesselhaus is a magical place where new forms of expression can be found for communicating with the audience.
