Production Details / Press Releases
Aerobics! – A ballet in 3 Acts, a piece for seven dancers, develops a new perspective on aerobics, a sport and physical training practice that conquered the world in the 1980s. During the three-acts structure, dancers investigate the relationship of dance, choreography and aerobics from its aesthetics and coordinated movements. The piece develops a precise study and reinterpretation of the subsurface structure of this fitness practice. The aerobic movement vocabulary is brought in an unusual structural and spatial relationship, disassembled and put back together. It will be treated as dance material for choreography, applying a dramaturgical line and content for the development of movements and changes of rhythm.
