Production Details / Press Releases
The dance performance “koerper.welle” is a multimedia research that turns the body into a medium. In two dialogic dance solos, choreographer Clébio Oliveira and his team investigate the waves of the physical and psychological, political and social catastrophe that also leaves its mark on us physically. What does our psycho-physical chronicle of the pandemic look like when we are suddenly forced to keep our physical distance in a globally interconnected world? From Berlin, we look to Brazil, to our own communities and, above all, to where people are radically subordinated to economic interests.
The pandemic comes in waves. It takes hold of the bodies and does not leave the spared untouched. The bodies flow into each other and depend on each other. Against this background, the dance performance searches for a contagiousness of bodily affects.
