Tanzcompagnie Rubato



Production Details / Press Releases

In our everyday environment, we are constantly encountering countless individual universes and different milieus. How do we perceive these realities, how do we deal with them in relation to our own?

Do you know that, you walk in the street or sit in the café and pick up fragments of conversation from people passing you from conversations at the next table. Or you can see gestures and interactions that are both commonplace and strange. We kept a kind of journal for a while, in which we noted interesting, weird, also cryptic linguistic fragments as well as movements and actions that we remembered. A text archive of banal, curious, philosophical, political fragments has emerged.

Our records are quasi extracts of different realities, not sensational, but human. From this material, we develop our new piece, traces_ # 62, for two dancers and a live musician.

What do these verbal, sensory and physical impressions make when translated into our bodies? And what happens to our bodies and our movements in dealing with this material?

What dances arise from our descriptions of movement when we connect the meaningful with the meaningless, the banal with the philosophical, the serious with the comical?

A space of possibility arises, a choreography that tries to come from this material to its own assertion and to make the banality and complexity of everyday life perceptible and celebrate.

A nonlinear way about perceived states, about conflicts that have moved into us.
