Present Body 2

Grupo Oito

Live-Improvisation mit Tanz und Musik

In the moment of improvisation, a special, almost magical presence  of the body emerges. Anything seems possible, even identity breaks free  of its fixed structures and bonds and allows itself to be reinvented  every moment.

Using music and dance, all of the artists weave their own experiences  and memories into a common whole that remains in constant motion.  Thoughts and ideas flash up, are taken up by the group and develop into  something else. In this way, new connections and possibilities are  always created, the power of change is revealed.

Present Body 2 is a live improvisation with dance and music  dedicated to the decolonization of bodies. It builds up the performance  of Present Body, which was recorded in November 2020 as part of the  MIMIMI Space project and presented digitally at HAU4. The new version  now links the Black and white perspectives: dancers from Grupo Oito and  MIMIMI Space enter into dialogue with each other. They bring in their  experiences and the physical repertoire of the last productions, in  which they worked on a new form of physicality and being from different  perspectives, thus looking for what they have in common and what  connects them. Understand the past, dance the present and dream the  future in your own way!

A post-performance discussion moderated by Nora Amin will be held on Wednesday, November 15
