In German, "spinnen" (spinning) has many meanings. It describes, among other things, the art of creating and pulling a thread, of following a thought, of pondering, of exaggerating something in such a way that it seems implausible and wondrous. deufert&plischke take (thread) spinning as their theme in order to create a performance together with children that moves between language and dance. Stories, memories, thoughts and meanings around garments let the protagonists wander through space with their bodies and senses. Thus a dance develops in the confusion of time, space and people.
explore dance was awarded the perspective prize DER FAUST 2019.
LOOKING FOR DANCING KIDS! The piece spinnen (spinning) was choreographed together with children in November 2019. As part of the Made in Potsdam festival, the play will be newly staged and on Sun Jan 19 brought to the stage. The fabrik Potsdam is looking for children from the age of 9 who want to spin the play further. Workshop on Sat Jan 18, 10:30-14:30, free admission.
