Recording: 2023-08-18 , HAU2 Hebbel am Ufer (Video © Bickmann & Kolde GbR)

Chiara Bersani, Corpoceleste


Tanz im August | HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU2)

Production Details / Press Releases

Chiara Bersani takes her audience and performers on a journey into the underwood of an imaginary forest. In this mysterious environment, sounds and gestures gradually evolve into an independent language. The work builds upon workshops with persons with motor disability. In collaboration with these participants, Bersani investigates how bodies with disabilities can coexist with nature. She continues her in-depth, artistic interrogationof the politics of the body, and asks how self-constructed images interact with social narratives – how bodies dance.
