Open Season

Tanzfabrik Berlin / Wedding

Production Details / Press Releases

All the lost energy that is dispersed in the processes of sharing desires and choices derives from continuous habits that reorganize and (re) archive our own history through the legitimacy models we choose as ours. Language, motions, looks, manners, efforts, perspectives, (…), have a prominent role to reinvent protocols that triggers and redefines boundaries between the individual and his bodywork.

Open Season negotiates these issues by setting up different drafts through the guidance of an invisible authorial voice. This will drive us into different playgrounds where we stage states of affection and conventions that delivers the individual own story to impressions of something to become. Operating in this frame, we will work in desynchronizing what we present from what is being presented, not in the dualism reality/fiction, but in how different realms can compete between each other through time and space.
