DAS INNERE BEBEN
by Cia Nadine Gerspacher (Fribourg)
6 Tage Frei
It is a single, powerful emotional outburst in shimmering, quirky facets, which the company of Freiburg's native choreographer Nadine Gerspacher brings to life in their new dance theatre DAS INNERE BEBEN.
The widows' balconies in the famous Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires form the basis of this series of scenes. Gerspacher relocates the mourning isolation of the barred boxes to a spacious apartment which, despite its darkness, is the opposite of the claustrophobia: there is pain here, but no tragedy. There is shelter here, but no prison, everything can be here, everything can flow.
This performance becomes an experience thanks to its powerful imagery and incredible dynamics, which always creates new surprises: Sudden changes in tempo, artistry, continuous waves of movement, frozen silence, excessive intoxication. Nadine Gerspacher describes her field of work as “everyday dance theatre”. DAS INNERE BEBEN impressively and passionately celebrates pain, solidarity and life which leaves memories with a long-lasting effect.
