Production Details / Press Releases

Where, when and how do we enjoy ourselves? In what ways can fun be physically expressed? Lea Moro’s new project inquires into the social relevance of enjoyment and investigates forms of its production. The Berlin choreographer often sets herself impossible tasks and combines the canonical with elements taken from popular culture and everyday life. In this work she enters a bright, noisy amusement park with its carnival rides and its travelling performers, transmuting the formulas of the park into choreographic principles. What emerges is a landscape of rotating bodies, of jokes, magic and masquerade.

Lea Moro is a dancer and choreographer from Switzerland, based in Berlin and Zurich. She studied at the Scuola Teatro Dimitri, the LABAN Centre London and the Inter-University Centre for Dance, Berlin. Her group piece “(b)reaching stillness” (2015) was presented in 2016 at the German Dance Platform in Frankfurt am Main and in 2017 at the Swiss Dance Days in Geneva. In 2015/16 Lea Moro was a choreographer in residence at K3 Centre for Choreography | Tanzplan Hamburg, where she developed her solo musical “The End of the Alphabet” (2016). For the 2017/18 season she is the Young Associated Artist at Tanzhaus Zürich.
