Kadir "Amigo" Memis & Jecko Siompo



In “Cabdance,” choreographers Kadir “Amigo” Memis and Jecko Siompo experiment with dancing in a restricted space. The contrast of the living conditions in their respective places of residence, Berlin and Jakarta, forms the starting point from which to examine the spatial as well as mental limits of human cohabitation. Indonesia’s capital is the epitome of congestion and gridlock, and stands in stark contrast to the sense of freedom and prosperity common to Europeans. In “Cabdance,” modern dance styles meet traditional dances from Turkish and Indonesian culture, creating new patterns of movement. Like the inhabitants of their cities, the dancers struggle with the fear of getting hassled, at the same time longing for exchange and communality.
