Jochen Roller, Monica Antezana
In the frame of 8th Tanznacht Berlin 2014
What do you do when your scenic ambitions are monumental but your production budget isn’t? With the help of visualisation techniques, hypnotic methods and simulation strategies, Jochen Roller fulfils his dream and together with the choreographer Mónica Antezana, conjures a musical onto the stage, the like of which the dance world has never seen. With a forty strong ensemble of cardboard dancers they create audacious choreographic formations, transforming the stage with glittering tableaux from props and astound us with low-tech magic – and at least twenty costume changes guaranteed! In these times of rampant currency crashes and cut price cultural bureaucratic spectacles this production carries the rating of last resort of dance artists to dizzying heights. Charm, fantasy and endurance tempt you to indulge in an opulence that seems not at all of this time.
