Saskia Hölbling
Pictographic Events

Date: Dec 17 and 18
Venue: Tanzquartier, Hall G

Five dancers packed into all-over lycra suits. With each physical gesture they sketch out an independent pictogram, in which signs, roles and classifications change in the blink of an eye - between masculinity and femininity, between individuality and the collective, between fiction and reality. They test and play with the comprehensibility of the hermetics of codes, and their movements thematise the relationship between representation and communication, habitus and body language.

With pictographic events Saskia Hölbling continues her artistic research into graphic, organic and acoustic signs and in the process has created a choreographic work that speaks out against the \"globalisation of signs\" and for the greatest possible diversity and uniqueness of understanding. With a wink and a weakness for surprises, she comes across the misunderstandings that arise in the process and in her choreographic decipherings she dedicates herself joyfully and with curiosity to the familiar, the new and the strange. Oscillating between readability and uncommunicativeness, it is left to the audience to give their attention to the individual signs, to change perspectives and to make their own individual ways through the pictogram of the performance.
