THEATER BIELEFELD:
PAST FORWARD

Gerhard Bohner’s later choreographic work Angst und Geometrie (Fear and Geometry) from1990 will be at the centre of the ‘past forward’ evening. The piece consists of disciplined movement sequences, quivering concentration and precision. Physically overwhelming emotions – e.g. fear – are contrasted with rigid, puppet-like movements.

Under the direction of former Bohner dancer Petr Tyc, Theater Bielefeld will be reproducing Angst und Geometrie with its TANZ Bielefeld ensemble for the 2017/18 season and putting it together in an artistic dialogue with three new creations by Overhead Project, Simone Sandroni and Lali Ayguadé.

The evening will thus make a piece of dance history visible and at the same time build bridges with current trends in the international dance scene.
