Production Details / Press Releases
“Saturday Sunday” is a performance that suggests an imaginary period. In a cold, almost frozen environment, a single dancer seems to be floating disoriented. Eerie and soft sounds form the space, the movements are edited and distorted, they are delayed and break off. It is a sphere in which incoherent things are knotted together and appearances begin in different directions, the frames of reference are fragmented, inaccurate, blurring into each other. The familiar blends with the next step or the wish of a memory and the idea of it or what just was. Here, awareness of observation and a constant correction throws a veil-like texture over the movements, which interrupt themselves in the search for heaviness and friction.
Nuria Höyng lives in Berlin and works with dance, choreography and music in different fields and settings. Her works consists of performances, videos, drawings, music arrangements and the interlacing between associated practises. Most recently her work has been shown in Uferstudios Berlin, the group exhibition live from life in the Noah Klink Gallery and the Jetztmusik Festival in Mannheim.
