Duration: 45 minuten 

Sway is inspired by the movement of swayingthe energy and motion of tipping in and out of balance. In thisrhythmical and adventurous solo, Andreas Hannes swerves through landscapes, Greek mythology, musical timelines and invented histories. The protagonist is propelled through these environments by a constant andsensual re-configuration of his body and the space. As he sways, forms and references melt and transform as soon as they start taking shape.  

 Andreas Hannes proposes an alternative to rigid notions of progress, linearity and destination, and prioritizescuriosity, play in the midst of struggle and finding movement when there is no solid ground. 


 (DON’T) LOOK ME IN THE EYES, Ainhoa Hernández Escudero 
Date: 14 December 2023, 20:00h & 21:30h (Frascati 3) 
Duration: 40 minuten
. Aftertalk with Ainhoa and Bogomir Doringer

(DON’T) LOOK ME IN THE EYES is a dance performance inspired by the story of the Greek myth of Medusa and the Gorgon sisters. It is a piece for three human performers and two robots that tackles the relationships between bodies and technology and the concept of the monstrous feminine, aiming to reflect on the representations of women identified and queer characters in the foundational narratives of Western culture. It attempts to displace the issues that the myth triggers into a sci-fi dystopian future, tracing a line that connects past and future to confront some of the problems we are facing in the present we inhabit. 

This performance is still being developed and will premiere in May 2024.

Christian Guerematchi shows fragments of his performance FUNK.  

FUNK is how bodies move together, how they make themselves be heard and how they connect with each other. The groove of the music movement funk is a metaphor for physical behavior, a passed on culture of sound, a dance and the smell of the body in motion. Therefore, FUNK is a cosmic experience that brings together the vibrations of the past, the present and the future.  
The musical philosophy of Sun Ra, expressed in this performance, embraces the 'ancestral' feminine energy from which we as humans are born and which can heal us. An energy that liberates the black body and connects it with resilient identity, lost culture, stolen wisdom and forbidden authenticity.  
Choreographer Christian Guerematchi shows that the body recognizes the cultural traditions that are in our blood. The body unconsciously reacts to internalized trauma, which is passed down from generation to generation. The consequence for bodies of color is therefore evident in the wearing of 'white masks'; as depicted in Frantz Fanon's book 'Black Skin, White Masks'. Inspired by the emotions and insights contained in Fanon's words, and the poetic lyrics of Sun Ra, Guerematchi makes a physical translation of the search for self-awareness.
