Curtis & Co. – dance affairs: Do You Contemporary Dance?
Tuesday, 21 June 2022, 8 p.m.
A stage. Lights. Music. And: Show!
In her solo production Do you contemporary dance? choreographer and dancer, Susanna Curtis, presents the results of her year-long research on the subject of contemporary dance.
Sometimes she’s philosphical, sometimes poetical, sometimes in humorous stand-up mode, sometimes deeply moving. She tells of her personal experiences and personal crises, in a career as dancer and performer spanning 35 years.
The audience follows the performer as she questions and searches for answers – what exactly is contemporary dance, where does it come from and why do we watch it (or not)? Susanna Curtis delves into dance, movement, language and light.
She metaphorically and literally bares all to discover dance underneath the fashionable mantle of the conceptional, conceptual and the authentic, maintaining her tongue in cheek stance. And she surprises herself in revealing the theatrical magic in everyday life.
Everything you always wanted to know about contemporary dance, but were too afraid to ask – for die-hard dance experts and for dance novices.

LA_Trottier Dance: Thinking Views
Thursday, 23 June 2022, 8 p.m.
In "Thinking Views" Éric Trottier and his four dancers develop a utopian harmonic scenario. It is inspired by the view of individual cells in their commonality, how they form an organism in constant micro-movement, and by molecular atoms in motion. Four individuals in consonance, connected to each other by a secret bond of mindfulness and agreement, tangibly following a common inner order, even if their interplay seems chaotic. The underlying order is difficult to reveal to the viewer. If they try to keep an eye on the individual, the group as a whole pushes itself into focus in its movement. The stage action plays with the fact that it is physiologically impossible for humans to perceive the whole and its parts at the same time - the gaze can only oscillate between them. In this production,
La TD focuses on the basic dimensions of space and movement in dance. The result is a symbiosis of movement, space, music and visuals that seems to us like a utopia: the utopia of a being, of nature, of a society in harmony.

Während eines gut 90-minütigen Spaziergangs durch die Ulmer Innenstadt laden an verschiedenen Stationen Akteure mit einer Performance zum Verweilen ein. Passanten werden zu Zuschauern. Zuschauer werden zu Akteuren. Regionale Tanzgruppen und ausgezeichnete Solisten zeigen, was Ulm tänzerisch drauf hat. Sie machen neugierig und begeistern, ob mit atemberaubender Akrobatik, ob mit pantomimischer Poesie oder mitreißender Rhythmik.
Augen auf! Tanz ist überall. Ganz nach dem Motto: Deine Stadt tanzt — tanz deine Stadt!
Der Parcours ist natürlich kostenlos und für Tänzer wie Zuschauer ein absolutes Muss.
