Aufräumarbeiten im Wasserfall is the first collaboration of the dancer/choreographer Anna Huber with the visual artist Yves Netzhammer.
The impulses, rules and limits of figurative movement in real, imaginary and synthetic space are mixed up and used to test new semantic fields. Vulnerable and immediate in its physical presence, the human body is simultaneously an instrument and object of research. In its complex transformations, traditional systems of orientation shift and bend into three dimensional structures. The gap between the possible and impossible becomes the laboratory for moments rich in associations.
Behind a systematic set of rules a fragile cosmos opens up, a poetic landscape between imagination, concrete situations and projections. Borders shift. Laws are upended. The focus moves from exterior space into a fragile interior. What seems obvious is questioned. The space must be constantly reorganized and balanced. A figure must assure itself of its own existence and tests its own physical laws and limits. The body transforms itself, meanings and functions shift and new fields of association open up. Ordinary objects become imaginary partners.
An oscillating system opens up, an in-between space, between projections and real space, the interior and exterior, concrete and imaginary, natural and artificial, vulnerable and perfect, between microcosm and macrocosm.
How unique or replaceable, vulnerable or inviolable is an individual?
