HEART MOMENT - An Interlude for Düsseldorf

Choreography: Alexandra Waierstall

IN THE HEART OF THE HEART OF ANOTHER MOMENT is a performance developed in the presence of the sculpture “Arena” – a 66-foot high modular grandstand by Rita McBride – and performed in its absence. It is a work developed for a series of multiple cities with a changing number of (local) dancers performing, each work becoming an edition of sorts, a bespoke work for and with each location. In this new work for Düsseldorf the rapidly changing and technological developments of our times are confronted with a concept of single bodies as part of a group touching upon themes of attentiveness and human intuition. The work emphasizes the delicate interplay of the bodies’ softness and strength, moving us as contemporary societies into the future.
