DANCE ON ENSEMBLE Ivo Dimchev / Christopher Roman


Part of  “OUT OF NOW / DANCE ON Festival”


English /  approx. 50 min.

“Out as go, out as love, out as text, out as care, out as move, out as pain, out as in. Out as now.”

Their collaboration began with Christopher Roman’s solo for 7 Dialogues, the very first production by the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE. Choreographer Ivo Dimchev created a devastating monologue for him, recited in floods of tears while posing in a blonde wig, lipstick and little else. The two artists have now reunited to extend the solo into a full-length piece, premiering at the DANCE ON Festival.


Concept, Text, Music & Choreography: Ivo Dimchev / Created for: Christopher Roman / Light Design: Patrick Lauckner, Tanja Rühl / Sound: Mattef Kuhlmey / With: Christopher Roman, Ivo Dimchev, Daniel Ferreira Sezinando, Claudia Henne, Sue Moosbauer, Luisa Morgenroth, Marie Schmitz, Enrique Garcia Gil, Vilja Mihalvosky, Deva Schule, K Mijung, Sharon Mercado Nogales, Duncan Routh, Patrick Rump, Johanna Marie Richte
