The intoxicating dance work The Burrow (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.
