Two big productions in 2023: WHIRLING LADDER | UPRIGHT and Gezeiten
Kai started an intensive self investigation about music and dance, in his newest solo 'Synästhesie'. He questioned his personal history of music and dance in the contemporary and urban world, showed tremendous emotional power when expressing his confusion, insistence and obsession. At the end he worked and walked through, and let all of them go. We can expect a new relationship to dance and music to emerge from him.
'Focusing on one simple thing can be the most transformative thing. Though narrow, it can be infinitely deep.' The 'WHIRLING LADDER' series is an experimental, radical approach to dance making. After her 'Montage' experience in the Kurt Jooss prize winning piece 'Being Far Away From', Chun enters a new period of focusing on one scenic picture the entire time, and intentionally weaken the expression of the face. Her questions are: is theater experience only interesting because of its movement in the defined space and time--'stage'? How else can I direct the observation, to express some unexplored dimensions? Inspired by her mediation practice, she is concentrating on the 'singularity', where energy is condensed, 'time' has not taken off and formed space yet.
