SOFTER SWELLS // A QUEER KIND OF EVIDENCE

Beschreibung

SOFTER SWELLS

Die in Irland geborene Choreografin Aoife McAtamney setzt sich mit der kulturellen Identität ihrer Heimat in Bezug auf Geschlecht und Sexualität auseinander. In ihrem Solo verhandelt sie mit Stimme und Tanz eine stark patriarchal geprägte Gesellschaft und bewegt sich durch eine Landschaft sich rasant verändernder Erinnerungen.

Aoife McAtamney absolvierte die London Contemporary Dance School und das D.A.N.C.E. Programm. 2014 wurde sie als Priority Company des europäischen Netzwerks Aerowaves ausgewählt.

The solo was created in Dublin during 2012 with Anna Kaszuba, Ilan Kav and Juan Corres Benito, founding members of DISH Dance. Softer Swells was an Aerowaves selection in 2014.

A QUEER KIND OF EVIDENCE ist ein Queering von Zeit. Signifikat trennt sich von Signifikant, der Akt des Sprechens löst die Bedeutung vom Gesprochenen, die Bewegung entfremdet sich vom Tanzenden. Wiederholung, Brechung, Fragmentierung. Bedeutungen zersplittern, die repräsentative Funktion der Theatermaschine bricht zusammen. Martin Hansen und Ania Nowak erkunden die Möglichkeiten queerer Zeitlichkeit innerhalb der linearen Zeit des Theaters.

MARTIN HANSEN und ANIA NOWAK schlossen 2014 den BA Tanz, Kontext, Choreographie am HZT Berlin ab. Hansen wurde 2012 von der Zeitschrift tanz zum Tänzer des Jahres gewählt.

ENGLISH:
A QUEER KIND OF EVIDENCE approaches time as contingent and malleable. It endures and cracks open time's 'eternalness' within the prescribed 50-minute frame of a theatre appointment. Sonic Youth's 1990 seminal album "Goo" and Karen Carpenter's story of slow disappearance and decreation coexist in a time of relentless pleasure which diffuses any promise of production, hope or progress. We are disappearing the tenses.

MARTIN HANSEN graduated from the HZT Berlin in 2014. His current interest resides in time economies within the theatre apparatus and choreographic process. He has performed in various contexts and capacities in Europe and Australia over the last decade, being named Dancer of the Year by TanzMagazin in 2012 and being awarded a Danceweb scholarship in 2013. Most recently he was the researcher in residence at Dancehouse Melbourne. Martins works have appeared in various venues throughout Germany (Uferstudios, Neuköllner Oper, Ballhaus Ost, PACT Zollverein, Semper Oper, Pathos Munich), Amsterdam and Melbourne.

ANIA NOWAK works choreographing language, situations and bodies. Her current interests are focused around time economy in choreographic practice and love as a procedure of generating knowledge and spending time. She is engaged in creating networks of collaboration with her peers based in and outside of Berlin, rethinking modes of working in today's choreography and encouraging feminist practices within the field. Ania recently graduated from HZT Berlin and is a recipient of last year ́s DanceWeb scholarship at Impuls Tanz Festival Vienna. Since moving to Germany in 2011, her own and collaborative work has been presented in different venues in Berlin (AdK, Uferstudios, Neuköllner Oper), Amsterdam, Barcelona and Stockholm. technologiesoflove.tumblr.com
