_ Current Production
"Dedicatoria" - The duet is dedicated to the human body in extreme conditions. The two dancers explore both, their physical limits as well as what lies beyond those limits. "Handle with care" - In the new group piece, premiered as part of the ªtanzZeit´ 2/00 at Theater am Halleschen Ufer, the dancers risk to be vulnerable in order to get intimate. They question themselves wether something vanishes when exposed to an audience.
