Together with the two dancers, Viviana Escalé and Valenti Rocamora i Torà, and Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola, Thiersch develops a vocabulary of movement in Nature Morte that seeks the creatural form within dance. The choreography spurs reflection on people, nature and animals whose proposed movements brush with each other, but are also similar. Undescribed locations (cf. non lieu by Marc Augé) with no evolved history or identity form the backdrop to Nature Morte. Following the laws of movement research, video artist Martin Rottenkolber visually zooms in on our near environment, alternating between domestication and wildness. Nature Morte describes how dead a person can be in nature and how lively nature can be in a person.
