A magic show? A hunting party? A punk concert? In ›How to get rid of a body. A magic manual‹, his new solo created in collaboration with electronic musician Korhan Erel and dramaturg Maja Zimmermann, choreographer and performer Léonard Engel blurs the lines between practices and genres. Inspired by animal mimicry, he creates a hybrid performance and asks the question: What does it take for a body to go unnoticed? ›How to get rid of body‹ plays with the fascination for illusion by going beyond the visual deception, allowing the body and its limitations to become the main subject of observation. Through the permanent attempt to disappear in its own environment, the body morphs between different personalities and experiences the paradox of its undissipating presence.
