Look – now he falls. How does he fall? This is how he falls.
Look – now she lies down. How does she lie down? This is how she lies down.
Like this –
(Jørgen Leth ”the perfect human” 1967)

Beginning something and staying with it. A movement in the opposite direction and a sudden disruption. Brief exchanges. Orientation detaches itself from the room. The moment of change emerging. Like a crash, ever so small. Only an arms’ length away.

“kannst du mich umdrehen” is the third choreographic collaboration of Christina Ciupke and Nik Haffner, in which they approach aspects of intimacy and loss of control. Their first duo “Subtitels” (2006) investigated shifts, gaps and the interdependent nature between language and movement. In their duo dealing with life (2008) they moved between unfinished stories, ‘the big topics’ and famous couples.
