Programme

DANCE ON ENSEMBLE Rabih Mroué

Water between three hands

Part of “OUT OF NOW / DANCE ON Festival”

Dance

English / 75 min.

Deaths, disappearances or farewells are all ways of becoming absent, of losing something, someone or yourself. At the same time, the things lost remain and bury themselves in our memory, so we’re dancing on the traces of existing graphs, collecting fragments, trying to see a whole that doesn’t exist. We’re carrying water that runs through our hands. If there’s no beginning, there’s no end, no margin, no hierarchy. In his first work with dancers, the Libanese theatre-maker Rabih Mroué is interested in the relationships between presence and absence, reality and fiction, focusing on performers’ bodies as sites of archival sedimentation of these questionable boundaries.

After touring to great acclaim all over Europe, it is finally presented in Berlin for the first time.
