Being - Deutschlandpremiere

Bára Sigfúsdóttir (Brüssel)

Performance dates:
Thu January 11, 2018, 8 pm
Fri January 12, 2018, 9 pm

How does the body speak? Is its language universal? The Icelandic choreographer Bára Sigfúsdóttir met the dancers Masoumeh Jalalieh and SeyedAlireza Mirmohammadi in Teheran. This encounter was the starting point for Being, a East-West dialogue between two people on stage, as well as between Europe and Iran. Here bodies appear in place of words and explanations - they are the binding element between people, between the audience and performer, and highlight similarities instead of differences. Being is a quiet piece, which sharpens our sensibilities and attention.
Following: Audience Discussion with the Artists.
