Studies on Infinity#1
Tanzhalle Wiesenburg, Wiesenstrasse 55, 13357 Berlin
Studies on infinity #1 deals with the working material and materialities related to Isabelle Shad’s upcoming group work The Shift Of Focus, which will premiere at HAU1 in October 2023. Removed from its theatre context, the movement material is examined for its potential of infinite repetition and variation, which develops its power in a durational installation performance. Certain sections are cut and recombined, as if zooming in or like miniatures, in such a way that each element can speak for itself in a field of tension between protagonist and chorus, landscape and inhabitants, movement and its voice, infinitely repeating like everything in our universe.
