Production Details / Press Releases

Fragments: based on material originally introduced by Daniella Kaufman, Sophie Camille Brunner and Jonas Maria Droste juxtapose the events of a collaborative score in search of a new narrative. Daniella Kaufman’s score is strongly informed by Leonard Zelig, the protagonist of Woody Allen’s 1983 movie Zelig. Her practice explores a notion of authenticity and the terms very own dependency on the existence of previously established clear cut role models. Her gaze intentionally doesn’t distinguish between the embodiment of hegemonic portraits the bearded lonesome sailor and more subtle variations of embodiment as in gender, or even the identification with objects.The dancers, in memory of Allen’s human chameleon, establish themselves and their relationship in a never ending, never judging repetitive structure of appropriations.
