The intoxicating dance-theater work Der Bau, created by Berlin-based choreographer Isabelle Schad and French artist Laurent Goldring, is inspired by Franz Kafka’s unfinished novella of the same title. With a mix of lush, ferocious, and sometimes spare movement, performed nude, Schad uses an animal’s burrow as a metaphor for the human body. Kafka’s labyrinth—described as a space derived from the body, and yet still belonging to it— is suggested by a large and commanding sheet of fabric, which is beautifully manipulated to dramatically alter the visual and physical relationship between body and space.

Der Bau is funded by the European Union.
