Recording: 2014-11-18 , Sophiensæle (Video © Walter Bickmann)

Hermann Heisig



Production Details / Press Releases

To what extent does the echo of an movement open up the possibility to experiment with the assumed logic in it? In STRTCH, Hermann Heisig celebrates the effects of looping, feedback and amplification, and their transmission into the body. As if you could rewind and fast forward movements and social situations, as you wished. These will continue to be expanded upon, deformed and carved out, a process of continuous reciprocal communication and interpretation.
