Nothing is normal here or: everything is special!

Danse Étoffée sur Musique Déguisée (5+)

Dancing future – 100 years of Bauhaus | ZOO / Thomas Hauert (Brüssel)  

19 May 2019 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2019Young dance

Nothing is normal here or: everything is special! A piano with screws, plastic parts and rubber bands between the strings and a dancer equipped with colorful balloons of all shapes show an extraordinary piece for a young audience. Mat Voorter moves to John Cage's Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano, which take us into unusual sound compositions, in constant transformation - wrapped in sheets, entwined in balloons or equipped with broomsticks. Sometimes he resembles an insect, sometimes an angular sculpture. Danse étoffée sur Musique Déguisée, which translates as "extended dance on disguised music", is an enchantingly light performance full of beauty and wit, based on pure lust for movement in dialogue with all kinds of objects.
With Danse étoffée sur Musique Déguisée, Thomas Hauert created his first piece for children.
