Contemporary dance

what about catastrophes? drives with sensual performative variations on catastrophe theatre at its borders: in a choreography of politically rutted landscapes, bodies which find themselves in a downfall, ritual movements, fragments of words and soundscapes emerges a multi-narrative space of layered voices.

in a choreography with and by language an ensemble of five dancers and performers explore the grammar of catastrophe. starting from threatened bodies, the power of images and imagination of society concerning apocalypse, claudia bosse investigates the potential of structures of collapse: narratives about democracy, terrorism, freedom, revolution and civil war face bodies within extreme situations. bodies which tremble in convulsion and try to unsettle the accelerating machine of capital, media and catastrophe at the same time.
