Isabelle Schad: Knotting (Film)

The film for the performance Knotting documents the research for the piece in excerpts and was shot as an experiment five days before the planned premiere in 2020. The choreographic portrait is inspired by the fluid, elastic, expansive movements of the dancer Francesca d’Ath and shows a physical confrontation with the knot. A lucid space is created that makes parts of the body appear like cut-outs, referencing, among other things, the sensual and soft forms of painter Henri Matisse’s works. The choreography is a powerful, ongoing play with repetition and change – with movement that never begins, never ends. The film will be presented online from March 12 – 21, 2021 on the website of the Sophiensaele and here on Tanzforum Berlin >>
