@ Monoplay in Zadar


The performer’s body as an organ, perceived as a space, is a continuous subject in the work of Isabelle Schad. This time the performer’s body appears as a stage : but for whose theatre ? Which drama ? One may say that drama occurs between the spectator and soloist, in the space where subjectivity appears as imaginary, ever-changing construct of what has been seen and what has been imagined. Taken from the aesthetical point Solo for Lea can be compared to some aspects of Picasso’s portraiture work, who wanted to question the ocular monism of perspective painting.

Isabelle Schad : Double Portrait with Przemek Kaminski and Nir Vidan
Presenting the first results for new productions planned in 2017 within an informal framework – Showings.

“The images are always somehow in-between, hybrids, and can never be clearly defined. As soon as an image starts to say something that each member of the audience can recognise, I want to change it or get rid of the image.” (Isabelle Schad, excerpt from an interview with Wolfgang Horn, Theater : Ein Fest ! Tanzplattform 2016, 3sat)

16th & 17th June 2017 / 7pm / Wiesenburg-Halle Seating is limited. Free entry

Showings @ Wiesenburg: Turning Solo

A portrait for Naima Ferré choreographed by Isabelle Schad

Naïma Ferré has been a practitioner of ‘whirling’ for many years. It is a type of dance that involves revolving around one’s own axis.
The ability to spin for long periods and the intensity required to do so have inspired me to produce a solo with and for Naima. An initially minimalistic study in movement slowly becomes a shimmering jewel, a rotating sculpture and the choreographic portrait of a dancer.
(Isabelle Schad)
