FUR / Turning Solo 2

Isabelle Schad / Good Work Productions (Berlin)  

12 – 13 Nov 2021 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2021Dance / performance

The pieces FUR and Turning Solo 2 invite the audience to a timeless experience of closeness and contemplation.

FUR is an encounter with the Japanese dancer Aya Toraiwa and her hair, which reaches her knees. The hair covers and clothes, becomes a shelter and a prosthesis. The fragile material around the body reveals what seems hidden and acts as a transition between the inner and outer worlds.

Turning Solo 2 is an extension of the solo performance with the same title: Turning Solo. It brings two interpretations, two worlds, two singular portraits together in a whirling and meditative flow. “With two t-shirts [Aïma Ferré and Jasmin Ihraç] make African, Spanish, and mystical cultural elements appear, mediate on the habitus of other people with a turban, turn into a torero and a bull, grow to become giants, fluttering fantasy creatures, and demonstrate at the same time the euphoric joyful impact of dancing.”
