Turning Solo 2

Turning Solo 2 is an extension of the solo performance of the same title. ’It brings together two interpretations, two worlds, two singular portraits in a single time slot: I had long dreamed of this. Naïma and Jasmin are so different, yet the common action of whirling and running on the same score opens up a common ground with many overlaps of resonances and experiences. Parallelisms of contrasting colour.’ (Isabelle Schad). Turning Solo 2 has been developed first for Sophiensaele in 2021 and can be experienced for the first time in an open-air version in the same way as a highly energetic, meditative turning practice in Volkspark Humboldthain.

TURNING SOLO 2 is a continuation of the work Turning Solo. NAÏMA FERRÉ’S whirling practice has been brought into dialogue with Schad’s research around axial and weight shift, around inner movement material and its extension into the world, around energetic fields that characterise oneself and others. In 2020, dancer and choreographer JASMIN İHRAÇ reworks the score and her interpretation made it become its own universe: another person, another portrait. Turning Solo 2 now brings both portraits together for the first time to form a double that can be experienced simultaneously.
