@ Berlinische Galerie / ASSEMBLE

SATURDAY, 15.09.2018, 16:15 Pieces and Elements

ASSEMBLE is proud to present the second performance in the series: Isabelle Schad’s "Pieces and Elements", presented within Out Now! Art in Public Space - One Day Festival by the Berlinische Galerie.

Isabelle Schad has formulated a distinct imagery and vocabulary in her choreographies, which works through the processes of having, becoming, and living in a body. Schad’s work "Pieces and Elements" considers modes of being together in the sense of a collective, moving entity. This body, with its different parts and multiple connections, serves as an analogy for the natural world, in which each organism interrelates with all others in order for the whole to exist. In "Pieces and Elements", the alternating interactions between single limbs, body parts and movement across bodies display ever-changing relationships between the self and the group.
For ASSEMBLE, a single module from "Pieces and Elements" is selected and restaged for the outdoor plaza of the Berlinische Galerie, on the verge between the museum and the street. It takes place within a day-long festival on art in public space, among other talks and artist interventions. In this context, the group of dancers may be perceived as a public sculpture, whose energies enter into dialogue with its urban surroundings and with the other public artworks in its vicinity.
