Performing architecture or turning bodies into construction elements, House Beating is a powerful, dynamic spectacle. Evolved around Corbusier modernist philosophy, it consists of a choreography of male dancers exploring borderline possibilities of their bodies, and a giant, organically morphing wooden structure, together with sounds of an original composition inspired by Xennakis and Cage.

 

Choreographed together with Elias Buttinger.

Premiere: Linz 2015. Duration: 45min.

Produced with STUV Scholarship / ABPU,

residency at RedSapata Tanzfabrik.

A personal reflection about growing up in postcommunist highrise dormitories mingled with a critical reflection upon Eastern interpretations of Corbusier's architectural idealism ("machine to live in"). For Living In was among selected works for the 2015 Polish Dance Platform. The solo has been presented in Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Belarus.

 

Mentored by Martin Sonderkamp.

Premiere: Gdańsk 2014. Duration: 25min

Performance duration: 1h15'. Exhibition: 6 weeks. Premiere: Linz 2016.

Surface is a journey to discover external layers of personality, body, architecture. Powerful phisical, and emotional relation between the man and its surrounding, the wall. The work lives very well also in non-theatrical spaces such as galleries, industrial zones or private rooms. The solo is on tour and has visited already Poland, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Georgia, Germany.
