traces_#62

 

The noise of the present.

Do you know that, you walk in the street or sit in the café and pick up fragments of conversation from passers-by, passing you from conversations at the next table. Or you can see gestures and interactions that are both commonplace and strange.

We kept a kind of journal for a while, in which we noted interesting, weird, also cryptic linguistic fragments as well as movements and actions that we remembered. A text archive of banal, curious, philosophical, political fragments has emerged.

Our records are quasi extracts of different realities, not sensational, but human. From this material, we develop our new piece, traces_ # 62, for two dancers and a live musician.

What do these verbal, sensory and physical impressions make when translated into our bodies? And what happens to our bodies and our movements in dealing with this material?What dances arise from our descriptions of movement when we combine the meaningful with the meaningless, the banal with the philosophical, the serious with the comical?

A space of possibility arises, a choreography that tries to come from this material to its own assertion and to make the banality and complexity of everyday life perceptible and celebrate.

A nonlinear way about perceived states, about conflicts that have moved into us.

 

A new duet by Jutta Hell and Dieter Baumann, together with live musician and sound artist Alexander Nickmann in a light installation by Fabian Bleisch.

blue-sky thinking

"Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? What do we expect? What awaits us? ... It is important to learn to hope. ... The work of this affect requires people who throw themselves into the endeavor, to which they themselves belong." With these words, the philosopher Ernst Bloch begins his central work" The Principle of Hope ".

Hope as something positive, as a forward-looking force. A force that leads from the desire to the will to action. Because the signs of the times we live in, are more in the direction of uncertainty, fear, conflict and isolation, the positive affect "hope" interests us as a deep human desire for a happy life. Daydreams are an important part of making hopes come true. blue-sky thinking, an attempt to develop creative ideas that are not constrained by current realities, trends, and beliefs.

Figures in a Landscape is a meditation on living painting and moving sculptures, a dialogue between visual art and dance, between European and Chinese culture.

Starting point were the costume designs of the British visual artist Jonathan Baldock, inspired by such diverse references and influences as Chinese opera costumes, medieval monks' cowls or the abstraction of European modernism.

With their choreography, Jutta Hell and Dieter Baumann add an extra dimension to the materiality of Baldock's costumes. They are repeatedly arranged differently on the bodies of the eight dancers, in the movement, through the dance, and receive an independent rhythm in the lines, form and color.

The museum as place of the performance, becomes an important part of the perception and reflection of the piece.

Gerhard Bohner's late work is the essence of his exploration of the legacy of pre-war modernism, in search of a new language that transcends time. The result are masterpieces of dance art. Throughout his life, a pioneer who has not established himself in any aesthetic habit, Bohner created with his latest work SOS a lesson of accuracy and reduction, permeable to theatrical composition.

The dance critic Irene Sieben wrote on the occasion of a resumption of SOS in 1999: "... The reunion with Bohner's work and his spiritual dimension is still groundbreaking seven years after his death." The pure doctrine. Every young choreographer should listen to, to distinguish black from white to learn to fight for the quality of art ... "(ballet international / dance aktuell 1/2000)

Jutta Hell and Dieter Baumann pass on the choreography they created  for them in 1991for the first time to the next generation of dancers. A TANZFONDS ERBE project.
