SHARED DANCES – A Portrait Series

What is told when people introduce themselves dancing?

SHARED DANCES – A Portrait Series is an ongoing collection of dancing portraits, inviting us to encounter people while they move.

What do I learn about a person when I can watch them move and they tell me about their movements?

SHARED DANCES – A Portrait Series A portrait series was born out of an interest in giving people and their physicality a narrative space. Eight dancers from the group piece ENSEMBLE (premiere: January 2023) contribute the first portraits and share a common question:

‚What brings you here?’

Our plan to let a portrait archive grow alongside our stage projects aims to question contemporary forms of assembly or contemporary stages as places of assembly: What are many bodies today? What are they depicting? And do contemporary stages provide enough room for polyphony and multiple corporealities?
