In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2019
A dance of transformation, inside the junkspace and beyond it.
»Esprit« is a dance piece about the physical transformations that our bodies experience in globalized spaces. It asks which dances airports or shopping centers – spaces designated as Junkspace by the architect Rem Koolhaas – bring about. What characterizes the dances of locations that, as a product of modernization, reject local identity? »Esprit« is an attempt to be moved by these non-places: the dancers travel through the Junkspace, within the euphoria of consumption, they defy anesthetization and create new spaces with their bodies.
