The Quiet

Dance

English / Language no problem / 

Jefta van Dinther’s work has been a constant presence at HAU Hebbel am Ufer and Tanz im August. “The Quiet” brings together five women in an unsettling choreography of the ordinary, calling attention to that which is transmitted across generations. They are quiet in action, set in motion by expressions of oral traditions. Reciting, chanting and praying, they forcefully move into and out of defined and defining patterns, propelling the quotidian into transcendence. Van Dinther’s new HAU co-production engages with time in some of its overlooked forms: the taking of time, the passing of time, the falling out of time. Together with his long-standing collaborators Minna Tiikkainen and David Kiers as well as Cristina Nyffeler, Jefta van Dinther continues the intertwining of space, sound, light, and body that characterizes his choreographies. His works deal with notions of illusion, the visible and the invisible, synesthesia, darkness, labour, the uncanny, affect, voice, and image.
