Production Details / Press Releases

»If you are not crazy nowadays, you have a lack of informations.« (Gabriel Barylli)

A person assembled of divergent individual parts that don’t fit. It’s well possible that the thalamus, which gives this piece its title, a brain region that is called the »gate to consciousness«, has stopped its operations. Independent of such clinical findings, in his solo Urs Dietrich generally shows a condition of being lost due to excessive demands typical of the times. THALAMUS is the powerful solo act of a dancer who consciously implements fissures and contradictions. He condenses simple details into dramas. The solo researches the secrets inherent in the changes and dissolution of real time.
