CLAIRE CUNNINGHAM: 4 LEGS GOOD

This lecture performance by multi-disciplinary artist Claire Cunningham explores her artistic practice -specifically the use / misuse, study and distortion of crutches in artistic practice and how they shape her practice. In the widest sense her work has shifted from its explorations about the connection between the crutches and the body – from what is possible in the combination of the crutches with her and other bodies to how the crutches connect her to the world.
Lecture performance in English.

Handicapped accessible offers: the artist’s live audio description is a part of the performance.
Early admission.

DEBORAH HAY – ANIMALS ON THE BEACH & 3 SOLI

ROS WARBY: FIRE
EVA MOHN: THE MAN WHO GREW COMMON IN WISDOM
DEBORAH HAY: MY CHOREOGRAPHED BODY …REVISITED, 2019
Deborah Hay is one of the most influential choreographers of the USA and was a founding member of the legendary Judson Dance Theater in New York. Fifteen years ago, she developed a programme and a method of collaborative choreography: she writes so-called scores, i.e. choreographic instructions for action, which dancers get to develop further. Deborah Hay developed her new production ANIMALS ON THE BEACH in which she deals with continuity and discontinuity, with five dancers from this solo programme.
Hays dancers dedicate themselves to a new language of movement that does not allow any pictorial conclusions to be drawn and that incorporates the dignity, humour and intelligence of their collaborators.
Christopher Roman and Ros Warby present their solos on the first evening. And on the two other nights Deborah Hay herself presents her new solo MY CHOREOGRAPHED BODY … REVISITED, 2019 as part of a two-part evening with ANIMALS ON THE BEACH.

Funded in the context of the Association of International Production Houses from the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, supported by the National Performance Network Guest Performance Fund for Dance, funded by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

nora chipaumire :#PUNK 100% POP *N!GGA

#PUNK 100% POP *N!GGA (verbalized as “hashtag punk, one hundred percent pop, star nigga”) is a three-part live performance album inspired by chipaumire’s formative years in Zimbabwe and the energy and rebellion of punk and 1980s New Wave music. Each part explores one of three sonic ideologies: Punk, Pop and Congolese Rumba, which are confronted and celebrated through music artists Patti Smith, Grace Jones and Rit Nzele. Each session exists as a complete statement and can be performed separately (like a single song) or together as an epic song cycle (like an album). Together, the trio paints a sonic and visual landscape, engaging voice, gesture and sound clash installation.
