"The why not ask why we dance dance". Duet by Scott Wells (USA) and Christoph Schütz (DE)
While dancing together Christoph and Scott came across these questions. Are we improvisers, detailed memorizers, after beauty or the truth? Do we care more about how it looks or feels; Does it feel like it looks good? Is the truth really locked deep in the body, the labyrinth of DNA and decades of physical impressions? Do we just need pre-verbal expression to regain our sensual connection to the world?
Let’s find out!
Filled with such questions (and California burritos) Christoph and Scott approach their commission with gravity, composition and … from a dozen directions, getting lost in the infinite nuance, remembering gravity and returning to why.
Light this evening is specially created and performed live by Anna Wemmert (S)
”My lighting-thoughts are currently concentrated to, and interested in, the meetings between light and skin, bodies and space, and the space within and between the light. I hope to be able to let go! And flow!”
VARIA is an unique festival för the art of improvisation. Since 2006 curator Lisa Larsdotter Petersson is arranging this annual international meeting for improvisers from different art-forms. There are a lot of work-shops, courses and training, but also performances and concerts.
