AH! OH! A CONTEMPORARY RITUAL
Kat Válastur (Berlin/Athen)
Dance / fabrik Potsdam / 60 min
Under a circle of light, three women and three men move slowly in an empty space, reminiscient of a club. Their gestures are precise, sometimes hesitant, but executed with utmost concentration. Kat Válastur invents a contemporary ritual, which at the same time seems enigmatic and familiar. Inspired by the idea of rituals, "Ah! Oh! A contemporary ritual" refers to the origins and traditions of circle dance, and emphasises in a fragile environment the wish for stability in a group. With this performance, Kat Válastur poses profound questions about symbolism, social codes and the place of the individual as well as the desire for a superior sentiment in the community.
