Stranger Premiere in Berlin

Stranger is a performance in which music dance and light design are in an interplay with each other. The performance is dealing with two strangers meeting each other, and how such an encounter can change the life of both participants. The same meeting is introduced from different angles on different levels over and over again. The more levels we meet the story, the more apparent it becomes that meeting a stranger is our best chance for understanding our motivation and character.

choreography, dance: Mikel Aristegui, Silvia Bennett, Annapaola Leso
composition, music: Gabor Csongradi, Georgi Sztojanov
direction, light: Emese Csornai

The performances will take place 23-26th of February 2017 in DOCK11 Berlin, every night at 19:00. Tickets at: 030-35120312, ticket@dock11-berlin.de

Performing: SPACE

Emotional space – sonic space – architectural space – Workshop by Emese Csornai and Gabor Csongradi, 16-19 November, 10h-15h, DOCK 11 – Saal 3, Kastanienallee 79, 10435 Berlin

This 4 days workshop is analysing instant composition and different spacial aspects of a performance. Through improvisation-based tasks, different strategies are offered for perceiving and interpreting space.

The work is aimed to develop a flow of contextual awareness through sonic and visual tasks. Our workshop is helpful for professional dancers in analysing one’s own practice and finding new performing strategies.
