Relations

Relations

Dance performance - 2010 - 30 minutes

 

Relations focuses on rhythm as an essential element of life.

It brings our attention to the rhythm of individuals and society, creating a confrontation between them. The dancers translate this tension, with personal movement language, into connections between human bodies and between bodies and music. They develop relations in space and time as a reflection of the cultural and social processes that surround us.

 

“Soli, Pas de Deux und Ensembletanz verdichtet Raffaella Galdi zu einer choreografischen Bogenform. Im Rhythmus zu Alexander Siebers Klangkompositionen aus Stille, Stimme, Geräuschen und dem Ohrwurm „Sunday Morning“ von Velvet Underground & Nico bleibt genug Raum für Doppelbödiges und Momente, in denen die Bewegung zu einer Augenblicksaufnahme einfriert, ja zu einer Pose, einer Plastik erstarrt (…). Aus einfachen Gesten baut sie in ihrer Schlichtheit schöne Szenen zusammen, ohne das Klassische Ballett völlig für den individuellen Ausdruck abzulehnen (...)”.
