STRANGE FOREIGN BODIES (world premiere)
schwere reiter tanz
The text “58 Indices on the Body” by the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy is a list of sometimes contradictory, short remarks on the human body. The choreographer Zufit Simon, together with the two dancers Lois Alexander and Clarissa Rêgo, was inspired by his thoughts for her movement research.
„Why indices rather than characters, signs, distinctive markings? Because the body escapes, is never sure, lets its presence be suspected but not identified. [...] All we have at our disposal are indications, traces, imprints and vestiges.“ The analytical approach of thinking liquefies in a translation into dance – it becomes as concrete as it does ephemeral.
„A body is a difference. Since it is a difference from every other body [...] it’s never done with differing. It also differs from itself.“ But a body must always be thought in a relationship – it is also a Mit-Sein, a being-with others.
