Boom Bodies

Doris Uhlich (AT)

This choreography is not for the faint-hearted: To the sound of pumping techno beats, Doris Uhlich drives her eight dancers to the edge of exhaustion, using her own special dance technique based on methods of channelling and releasing energy. This is her preferred way of gaining freedom – from the global phenomenon of fear, which can turn people immobile. Uhlich’s life-affirming movement explosions gradually intensify into a collective physical euphoria, the vibrations of which reach over to the audience. The rhythm for this enthralling dance marathon is provided by a live DJ, flooding the space with music, which the dancers transfer into ever new movement patterns. Even when everything suddenly seems to go calm, the energy in the performers’ bodies continues pulsating, just in slow motion. The beat goes on – come what may.

(approx. 60 mins.)
