In 2012 Berlin Choreographer Isabelle Schad and French artist Laurent Goldring created their currently touring piece DER BAU (invited a.o. to this year’s German Dance Platform), for which Kafka’s unfinished novella of the same title has been serving as an inspiration source. Starting from the description of an animal’s burrow as a metaphor for the body, with its organs and secretions, they have been investigating the space of the stage as an organ. The labyrinth described by Kafka as a space deriving from the body itself, yet still belonging to it becomes the basis for their explorations of conceiving this new relationship between body and space that they have started with their series of pieces Unturtled in 2008.

Form and Mass, a solo Isabelle Schad created in 2013 for and with Sonja Pregrad, examines the relation between energy and matter, between material and movement, and the subsequent emergence of form. The material - black bags filled with polystyrene beads - serves as an amplifier towards visibility : it elongates the body into its surrounding space.

60 of those black bags are the material used in the new group piece DER BAU - Group12x60, which continues the new perspective on choreographing inner / outer space. The material movement of a group of 12 performers creates a space travel that dwells between paradoxal landscapes, pure energetic matter, abstract painting and moving sculpture. A black phantasmagorical mass invades little by little the space of the stage allowing the spectator’s eye to dive into a journey of surprises, desires and fantasies ...

Reflection / Zoom sharing @ Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts

I have had the pleasure to share this work with students and audiences connected to the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. In collaboration with Goethe Institute Hongkong.

After sharing 30min excerpt from the piece on video, we have started a conversation around the topics, practices and concerns touching this work and my practices in general. I have been impressed by the questions coming from the students during this Zoom Meeting, thank you so much.

Der Bau-Gruppe / Kids @ FRATZ

It is a real pleasure to be able to prepare and present our piece DER BAU-Gruppe / Kids for kids (and adults) from 3 years onwards.

We are also proud to present it in the space where it has been created and developed at first: at Tanzhalle Wiesenburg. It is now shown in the frame of FRATZ Festival Berlin 2020.

Eine Bühne voller schwarzer Säcke. Langsam erwachen sie zum Leben, sie richten sich auf, bewegen sich fort, erkunden den Raum. Plötzlich erscheint ein Arm, dann ein Bein, schließlich ein ganzer Mensch. In Franz Kafkas unvollendeter Erzählung »Der Bau« wird ein Tierbau beschrieben, gebaut von einem Tier, das in den unterirdischen Höhlen und Gängen Schutz sucht und sich dann zunehmend darin verliert. Die Erzählung dient als titelgebende Metapher und Ausgangsbasis für die Erforschung einer besonderen Beziehung zwischen Körper und Raum.

"Nicht Ekstase ist das Ziel der hoch konzentrierten Selbstverschraubung, sondern die meditative Ausstülpung von Bewegungsenergien, die dem Sog des erzeugten Strudels standhalten. Eine beglückende Doppelmeditation, die die Welt auf jeden Fall besser macht." (Astrid Kaminski)
