Über die Dinge


Über die Dinge is a approximately 30-minute dance theatre. Two dancers move in a world where things behave differently than usual. Actually quite everyday objects have suddenly lost their original meaning. Now it is a matter of finding one’s way in this world in which everything seems strange at first glance. Do you get involved with the new? Does one refuse, or is one even inspired by sudden, unprecedented perspectives? Playfully and humorously, the dancers move behind, beside, over, under and with things. Between music in the style of the 30s and 50s, a poem appears again and again, which deals with philosophical thoughts about the things of this world. Should we perhaps simply stand above things?
