Telling Stories – a version for three

Tanzplattform Deutschland 2022


Englisch / 60 mins.

How do you furnish a room with objects you can’t see? Three performers share their imagination with the audience on a stage that is open on all sides and challenges both spectators and performers to reveal their own (unconscious) layers of projection and observation. A simple but complex invitation to relate oneself to things present or absent. Telling Stories – a version for three doesn’t narrate de/construction but enables it to be experienced choreographically with and through bodies. The mechanisms of our perception are literally spatialised and sometimes even inverted on a spectrum from visual description to visualisation, from phantasy to abstraction.
