Dance/Performance during tanz nrw
Our everyday life is increasingly defined by mobility. We are constantly in motion. Internet users can, like never before, experience communication and activity in a state of physical standstill. In ›HAUS, KEIN HAUS‹ choreographer Antje Velsinger follows the trail of our restless mobility drawing on everyday objects, human bodies, sound and video projections to examine the machinery of movement and explore various sets of questions: What moves us? When do we move something? When are we moved by something? And what role can the act of staying put play?

Dance/Performance during tanz nrw
In her MA graduation work from the Stockholm University of the Arts, choreographer Ursula Nill proposes a body that moves through space and is at the same time space. A body as an instrument in exposing a landscape and simultaneously sounding out its geography. A body whose movements trace immaterial, inner and tangible space in equal measures. A body whose physicality becomes the staging ground for stories and encounters to unfold and be taken apart...

Dance/Performance during tanz nrw
In Stephanie Thiersch’s production ›Bronze by Gold‹ seven performers, a string quintet and a DJ rally to form a utopian community. Fired on by DJ Elephant Power’s pounding bass beats and virtuoso scratch techniques, they throw themselves into a fast, furious and seductive mix of contemporary dance, tableaux vivants, string quartet and club music that boldly shakes up iconic images of a society that celebrates itself, resigns, moves on, and ultimately has to survive.

Research festival with residencies / talks / workshops and public moments
In spring 2017 PACT launched 1/2/8, a new multi-chaptered research and development format with a special focus on connections between knowledge and actions.

Dance / Performance
In ›Pieces and Elements‹, the widely acclaimed second part of her trilogy on collective bodies, Isabelle Schad brings together twelve performers to negotiate the idea of a collective body in motion that can only function as a whole. At the interface between western and eastern points of view, between the visual and the performing arts, between installation and choreographic miniatures, she considers the fluid borderlines between a scientific, biological, cellular approach to the body and one that sees the human body in relation to the cycle of nature.

Polyphonic solo
Developed in part during a residency at PACT, ›Tutuguri‹ is a polyphonic solo by Flora Détraz which explores the desynchronisation between movements and the sounds that escape them or surrender to them. In a perpetual conflict between opposites and inhabited by whispers, animal growls, children’s noises, alien sounds, conversations and spasms, Détraz’s body suggests a world of paradoxes and contradictions.

Japanese artist Naoko Tanaka’s Shadow Trilogy consists of the three installation performances ›Die Scheinwerferin‹ (2011), ›Absolute Helligkeit‹ (2012) and ›Unverinnerlicht‹ (2015) which explore the boundaries of visual arts and scenographic installation.

Dance
The choreographers Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud are experts at bringing together and composing with different dance styles that are deeply rooted in specific cultures.  In their latest work ›DFS‹, a continuation on ›Dancehall Polyphony‹ which was a commission for the TanzTheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, they create a very special kind of culture clash by confronting Georgian vocal polyphony with Jamaican Dancehall music which has its origins in the urban ghettos of Kingston and remains to this day an expression of opposition against repressiv

Dance / As part of Ruhrtriennale
In his latest production ›CAEN AMOUR‹, New York choreographer Trajal Harrell prompts a sensuous encounter between the legendary dance and Art Nouveau icon, Loïe Fuller and the founder of the dance performance art Butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata. Swathed in flowing garments and inspired by Oriental concepts, Fuller’s dancing was simultaneously avant-garde and Vaudeville in nature and posthumously hailed as modern dance.
