Solo für Lea
Mi 30. + Do 31. Mai 2018, 20:00

Publikumsgespräch: Mi 30. Mai 2018, 21:15 (T-Werk)
Warm Up: Do 31. Mai 2018, 19:00 (T-Werk)

Solo für Lea ist eine Be- gegnung zwischen Isabelle Schad und Lea Moro. Entstanden ist ein sehr per- sönliches, choreografisches Porträt, das faszinierend mit den spezifischen Merkmalen von Moros Körper und dessen Rhythmen, Konturen, Farben und Energien spielt und diese sichtbar macht. Gemeinsam begeben sich die beiden Frauen in Konstellationen des Formens und loten die Beziehungen zwischen Körper, Bewegung, Bild und (Re-)Präsentation aus. Zergliedert und wieder neu organisiert wird der Körper zur bloßen Materialität – zum Medium energetischer Potenziale und Transformationen. An der Schnittstelle von Bildender Kunst und Tanz, Performance und Installation, sinnlicher Erfahrung und Abstraktion spielt das Solo mit Analogien und Form-Aspekten des Kubismus, sowie Picassos Zeichnungen aus einem Strich.

Fugues: „ a complex work that challenges both the choreographer Isabelle Schad and her audience in previously unseen ways. And thus creates opportunities to go beyond borders.“ (Katharina Schmidt)

With Fugues, Berlin choreographer and dancer Isabelle Schad continues her work between musical concepts and their expression in movement. Coming from a music background and a lifelong interest in the polyphonic work of J.S. Bach, she attempts to look at her own (hi)story and the origins of (her) movement between discipline and pleasure. Fugues is an autobiographical work in which the performer’s body serves as an example for the construction of the individual within disciplines and systems one cannot escape from.

Solo for Lea at Sophiensaele Berlin
Saturday, 07.04.2018, 19:30
Sunday, 08.04.2018, 19:30

Solo for Lea: „A study in minimalism, a physical portrait and a sculpture in motion … a sublime draft.“ (Elena Philipp)

Solo for Lea is a meeting between Isabelle Schad and Lea Moro. The work attempts to draw a very personal portrait of Lea Moro, dealing with the specificities of her body, its rhythms, its contours, colours and energies, playing with form-aspects of cubism and Picasso’s drawings in one dash. Together Schad and Moro engage in constellations of forming and disfiguring, in which the body itself becomes the stage: the space, place and matter that is the subject of observation.
