JULY 26 | 8.00 PM | FUR + TURNING SOLO 2

The works FUR, Rotations and Turning Solo 2 are part of an ongoing series by choreographer Isabelle Schad, in which she moulds rhythms and energies into choreographed experiences. Together with the performers, she creates three very personal portraits. The works invite to dive into a process of timelessness, of closeness and contemplation.

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.

FUR is an encounter with the Japanese dancer AYA TORAIWA and her hair, which reaches her knees. The hair covers and clothes, becomes a shelter and a prosthesis: a fur-like outer layer and extension of the body, the energies, the self. The fragile material around the body reveals what seems hidden and acts as a transition between the inner and outer worlds.

In ROTATIONS, the movements of the dancer CLAUDIA TOMASI rotate and accumulate into an energetic flow, creating the illusion that her body is moving by itself. Between precision and loss of control, the choreography creates an astonishing energy.

Double Bill evening with Pieces and Elements and FUR @ Globe Theater

Nach dem erfolgreichen Gastspiel mit Turning Solo im September 2020 kehrt Isabelle Schad jetzt mit ihrer wegweisenden Gruppen-Choreografie Pieces and Elements und mit dem choreografischen Portrait FUR auf die Open Air Bühne des Globe Theaters zurück. In Pieces and Elements verhandelt eine Gruppe von Performer*innen ihren kollektiven Körper in Bewegung, der nur als gesamter funktionieren kann, analog zu zyklischen Vorgängen in der Natur. Die Neuinterpretation wird eigens für das Globe Theater adaptiert und in dieser Version zum ersten Mal gezeigt werden.

FUR ist eine Begegnung mit der japanischen Tänzerin Aya Toraiwa, befasst sich mit ihren spezifischen Körpermerkmalen, ihren Rhythmen, Konturen, Farben, Energien und insbesondere mit ihrem knielangen Haar. Ihr Haar bedeckt und bekleidet, wird zum Schutzraum und zur Prothese: eine fellähnliche äußere Schicht und Verlängerung des Körpers, der Energien, des Selbst.

Eine Produktion von Isabelle Schad, Unterstützt durch DIEHL+RITTER/TANZPAKT RECONNECT, gefördert von der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien im Rahmen der Initiative NEUSTART KULTUR. Hilfsprogramm Tanz“ Dank an: Wiesen55 e.V.

Workshop / for Theater o.N.

On 20.+21.5. I have had the pleasure to give a 2 days workshop to the team of Theater o.N. between Wiesenburg and Humboldthain.
We have trained together moving the inside with the outside and vice versa. We have started to learn some principles of movement coming from Aikido. We have started to hold a sword (Bokken) and a stick (Jo) in our hands.
We have moved with.a partner and within a group...again...after such a long time...
