Michèle Noiret

Das Auge, das Ohr und der Ort

Part of PURPLE – International Dance Festival for young audience


Minimum age: 6 years
approx. 60 mins.

In her dance-cinema project “Das Auge, das Ohr und der Ort” (“The Eye, the Ear and the Place”), Brussels-based choreographer Michèle Noiret conveys the wonderful universe of insects and their fascinating diversity of lifestyles, structures and forms that can both enchant and terrify. The choreography by dancers David Drouard and Sara Tan is equally inspired by the amazement of this impressive world as by the sadness and anger at its gradual disappearance. Light and electronic sound develop their own magnetism on stage, underlined by the multifunctional stage design. This performance poses ecological and social questions to a young audience that will shape the future of our society. With “The Eye, the Ear and the Place”, the international dance festival for a young audience PURPLE opens its seventh edition at HAU Hebbel am Ufer and other venues as well as in local schools.
