I am in the midst of preparing for my new evening length piece SKINNED, coproduced by Theater ROXY Birsfelden, where it will be premiered on 14 October, with performances on 16/17/19/21 October. The piece will also be shown at Sophiensäle Berlin during Tanztage 2019 in January next year.

SKINNED deals with loss of safety in content and form. Confronting the unfamiliar and thus departing from a state of not-knowing, SKINNED looks at vulnerability. The movement research is based on structured imporvisation, the dancers act between the polar priorities of intuition and composition. Real physical reaction to sensation is used as a starting point for creating movement beyond habitual movement patterns. The skin delineating the border between self and world is a reference point for the physical research. The piece will be staged in close proximity to the audience. The sound of the dancers’ bodies, their movement, touch and breath will be recorded live and woven into the fabric of the piece.
