Production Details / Press Releases
Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos arrived from San Francisco just last year, a city known for an arts community that confidently engages its sexuality, gender and identity. Therefore works that are driven by larger political questions and take radical positions are no rarity. Under the title “How to move to Berlin”, De Hoyos has worked out a 12-point plan for himself that addresses the economic and creative challenges of existence as an artist on the move. We are looking forward to seeing what his relocation to Berlin set in motion.
He self-identifies as a pirate or Robin Hood, and has been influenced by his collaborations with Keith Hennessy and Meg Stuart. He has also worked with Sara Shelton Mann, with whom he learned to access physical states via energy work. This current, hugely popular work has become better known in Berlin through Meg Stuart.
“A dance of constant departures and arrivals. Bodies dis-integrating- traveling between density and beings of light.”
Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos
