Ian Kaler

o.T. I (Incipient Futures)


approx. 60 minutes

In "o.T. | (Incipient Futures)" the choreographer Ian Kaler continues his collaboration from the first and second part of his choreographic series "o.T." (german acronym for "untitled") – co-produced and presented by HAU Hebbel am Ufer – with musician and multimedia artist Planningtorock. The title of the piece signalizes that a plurality of futures is set in motion. Kaler and Planningtorock are joined live on stage by the guest performer and fashion designer Stephane Peeps Moun as well as the drummer Joy Leah Joseph. "o.T. | (Incipient Futures)" is an energetic and intimate exploration of how music, dance and movement form, alter and play with (temporal) unions and alliances. How are we as a community being moved? Where are we heading towards as individuals and together? The set-designer and visual artist Stephanie Rauch designes a close encounter arena-like set-up for the piece.
