In “Allongé” Julian Weber continues his interdisciplinary approach, based on an examination of Constantin Brânçusi’s sculptural work in collaboration with a ballet dancer and a pole dancer. Brânçusi’s oeuvre and his pioneering formal and contextual approaches serve as a starting point for the development of a stage set which is investigated for its performative and choreographic potential. Through the collision of the different disciplines and dance styles, both opposites and parallels of these techniques are examined, as well as a potential entanglement of the styles. Further "Allongé" explores the possibilities of emancipation from defined role models and subject/object attributions through a contemporary perspective on tradition and handicraft.
Julian Weber is a choreographer/dancer, visual artist and set-designer. Julian studied sculpture at HBK Brunswick, Academy of Arts Vienna and choreography at HZT Berlin and the Theaterschool in Amsterdam. Julian's work deals with spaces of interaction involving body, material and movement and is situated at the intersection of visual and performance art. Julian received different grants such as the Berlin Art Prize 2015 and founded NEW FEARS - a gallery for dance and performance in Berlin Wedding. www.julianweber.berta.me
