Tânia Carvalho / Tânia Oak Tree (PT): Icosahedron

Mar 9 and Mar 10, 20:30
Venue: TQW/ Halle G
Austrian première

Inspired by the geometric figure of the icosahaedron, a three-dimensional form, Tânia Carvalho constructs a moved body out of four groups of five dancers. Drawing on the space and body elements of the 1920s and in interplay with volumes and surfaces, a kaleidoscopic body develops that grips the audience through the fanning out of perspectives. The Portuguese artist is fascinated here by \"the various faces that we all conceal within us.\" In her composition she searches for the forms and facets, for the emotions and qualities of the dancers who have merged into a unit, and drafts an impressive choreography that is in a state of constant transformation.
The virtuosity that develops rises to another level in the second part of the evening, when it encounters the individual expressive potential of the performer\'s movement language. Between emotions, mathematical clarity and flowing gestures, Icosahaedron lives from the synchronisation and renewed dissolution of movements that simultaneously excite and challenge our perception.
