Theater Bielefeld: “past forward” – Interviews

The focus of the past forward evening is on Gerhard Bohner’s late choreographic work Angst und Geometrie (Fear and Geometry), which was commissioned by Berlin’s Hebbel Theater and premiered in 1990.
Twenty-eight years later, Theater Bielefeld and its ensemble TANZ Bielefeld (artistic direction: Simone Sandroni) has now restaged the piece under the direction of the former Bohner dancer Petr Tyc.

The reconstruction will be supplemented by works by three contemporary choreographers – Simone SandroniOverhead Project and Lali Ayguadé – who will be looking at Bohner’s choreography and its intrinsic themes and forms in wholly different ways.

In short interviews, the artists involved talk about their access to Angst und Geometry as well as their own new creations.
