basis for being

Choreography: Sina Saberi

basis for being is a very personal research process. Its main tool is the practice of storytelling based on biography and fiction. Various unfulfilled states of being and the desire to fulfill them through embodiment serve as a starting point for Sina Saberi. In videos from his own childhood as well as from the 1970s, from pre-Islamic Iran, he researches how the history of a forty-year-long interruption of dancing in Iran manifests itself in his own body. Starting in 2020, he will continue working on this research as part of the K3 – Tanzplan Hamburg residency.
