An incredible evening!
We present to you 3 wonderful shorts, they are as different as they are diverse. Every piece lasts around 30 minutes.
The Shorts with HURyCAN, Familiar Faces & Jörg Müller
In «Asuelto» four dancers perform and talk about their understanding of life, their observation of reality. If we understand life as an organism, as a moving body, then it becomes magical, tangible and sensitive, is beautiful and ugly at once - but above all: alive.
These bodies meet and begin to listen to each other. Their encounter creates a lively, powerful dance in which they attract each other, tear apart and manipulate each other – passionately, playful and tender, laughing and screaming. «Asuelto» is about what makes us human: our strengths and weaknesses, our ugliness and beauty.
"A hard choreography, in the truest sense of the word, with great force, dazzling in execution and with an ingenious staging"Andrés Collado, Platea Magazine
«Asuelto», celebrated by the international press, is an award-winning dance performance whose mesmerizing physicality has convinced us to include it in this year's short program. HURyCAN was founded in 2013 with the meeting of ArtHUR Bernard Bazin and CANdelaria Antelo. It is a project of creation and human interaction that confirms movement as a communicative need.
In "Not sure where this came from," the four artists physically investigate the „collapse“. What happens when you collapse? What happens in that moment? What happens after it? As a group, we break down and as a group, we rise together, right? It is not about success or failure, but about trial and error, to continue and to bear the consequences.
Wonderfully fluent and breathtakingly acrobatic, Familiar Faces explore these topics directly on stage. "Not sure where this came from" impresses with an exceptional research and movement quality that is second to none.
"In an individualistic world, we try to give the group its place. The collapse is a very clear picture of a person who loses all their energy. We are particularly interested in the moment between passivity and activity. How do we resist when passivity and despair reign?"Familiar Faces
The work of the four artists, who graduated last summer, has already won the European Creative Commitment of Circus Next. They toured with various circus, opera and dance creations and we are very happy to lure them to Berlin for a few days.
« Mobile » is a timeless dance, a moment of pure poetry. Seemingly floating, five long metal tubes hang in the silent space. Quietly Jörg Müller enters the room.
In a continuous dialogue and dance, Jörg Müller moves with and between these hanging, flying and floating tubes, which, when they meet or are struck by him, sound like a gigantic carillon.
Sometimes drunkenly circling, sometimes whirling stormily, sometimes silently and sometimes sounding, he and the tubes paint a unique, hypnotic and performative work of art.
"Jörg Müller's juggling planetary carousel fascinates and hypnotises: the fluidity of the hanging tubes, which draw circles and whose encounter, through their telluric sound, imitates the fear and beauty of a cosmic shock ..."
Blaise Merlin, "La voix est libre"
