A VISUAL SOUND MOVEMENT BASED PERFORMANCE
In an interdisciplinary dialogue, choreographer/ director Alexandra Waierstall, composer / pianist HAUSCHKA, alias Volker Bertelmann, visual artist Marianna Christofides and the dancers, investigate the relationship between man and the environment, steady progress and the limits of civilizational growth, ecology and choreography, archaeology and future utopia, the visible and the invisible. “A CITY SEEKING ITS BODIES” is looking for the embodiment of abandoned places, revealing the hidden, creating fractures, transformation and continuity. The piece creates a utopian space,
like poetry, a symbiosis between humans and
the environment. A minimal science fiction – the performance moves on a fine line between fiction and reality. The performers, acting like weaving oracles, move thoughts and feelings, leading the viewer into an alternate reality in a different and unpredictable future, which coexists with our present.
