About the Project

This dance theater production for the stage, “…companions of a new era” (AT) was proceeded by the digital format “Über die Besiegten einer Neuen Zeit”, which was funded by the Performing Arts Fund and the city of Wuppertal. Important protagonists and collaborators are once again Julie Anne Stanzak, Scott Jennings and Pawel Malicki, with whom I have worked since “A Tiny Cut in a Velvet Dress” and new in the team of artists is Ophelia Young.

This project is inspired by the dramatic power and language of Virginie Despentes: “The Life of Vernon Subutex” and the irritating but deeply affecting images of its film version “Baise Moi. How can it be possible to create a comparatively subtle power of images in motion in and through dance?

I am interested in authentic and virtuosic dancers on stage, that includes generations. With the help of the FONDS DARSTELLENDE KUNST, it was possible to develop a digital version for the cameras. Now it’s about developing strategies with these exceptional dancers in an exciting research process in order to work out the digital approaches as an analogue dance performance
