Figures in a Landscape

Gemäldegalerie

Production Details / Press Releases

Figures in a Landscape is a dialogue between visual arts and dance, between European and Chinese culture. A meditation on living painting and moving sculptures. Starting point are the costume designs of the British visual artist Jonathan Baldock, inspired by such various references and influences as Chinese opera costumes, medieval monks’ cowls or the abstraction of European modernism. The costumes become the linchpin of choreographic constellations. They are constantly rearranged by the eight dancers, in the movement, through dance, in sculptures. Dance and costume, in action and silence, create an independent sound. The result is a dynamic sculpture, a continuous metamorphosis of form, space, rhythm, and meaning. A corresponding circular process of becoming and passing.
