LOT - Acts on Resilience
In LOT, Fabian Riess and Tasha Hess-Neustadt deal with construction and decay. A flow of affect and resonance accelerates the volume of silence. For two years, the collective has been dealing with the extremes of restriction and freedom and, in its somatic research, is concerned with their effects on the body. Starting from a dystopian landscape, they interact with the space, follow impulses, create closeness and intimacy. Two performers in a trio with their surroundings.
Imagine a desert arena, a suspended and liminal space. Somewhere after the decaying remnants of capitalist realism have lost their meaning, before the formation of the next future fantasy. A somatic kind of science fiction. Decay and regrowth morph into one another. Movement becomes the measure of temporality. Cycles open and close steadily, almost imperceptibly, until the previous order reveals itself in a new form. After the sun has bleached out all artifacts of our late anthropocene, and the lava has solidified back into cracking stone, we dream to ride the thing which breaks us. To reappropriate the constancy of our systems.
The dancer/choreographer collective Riess Neustadt has been creating and dancing at the interface of somatics and installation since 2020. They work with material installations with which they interact through movement and through sound and silence. In their dance practice they work with physical states and somatic movement qualities. The subject matter of their work centers around cultural and subcultural references from queer perspectives. Their productions have already been shown at the Schwere Reiter Munich, Gallus Theater Frankfurt, Delphi Space Freiburg and the Tanzzentrale Nuremberg. In addition to their shared choreographic practice, they each work individually as dancers with choreographers such as Johannes Wieland and Simone Mousset.
