Production Details / Press Releases

A dance of transformation, inside the junkspace and beyond it.

»Esprit« is a dance piece about the physical transformations that our bodies experience in globalized spaces. It asks which dances airports or shopping centers – spaces designated as Junkspace by the architect Rem Koolhaas – bring about. What characterizes the dances of locations that, as a product of modernization, reject local identity? »Esprit« is an attempt to be moved by these non-places: the dancers travel through the Junkspace, within the euphoria of consumption, they defy anesthetization and create new spaces with their bodies.

SUDDENLY consists of:
Johanna Ackva (DE), Camille Chapon (FR/DE), Ewa Dziarnowska (PL/DE), Björn Ivan Ekemark (SE/DE), Forough Fami (IR/DE), Anna Fitoussi (IR/DE), Magdalena Meindl (AU/DE), Julia Plawgo (PL/DE), Lyllie Rouvière (FR/DE), Sunanyana Shetty (IN/DE), Grete Šmitaite (LT/DE), Hanna Kritten Tangsoo (EE/DE), Alistair Watts (AU/DE)
