Rita Vilhena (NL/PT)
What techniques, what content and what dedication does it take in order for dance or theatre actions to turn into rituals? After collaborations with Meg Stuart among others, this is what Rita Vilhena was dealing with in her most recent group piece Emergency Plan. Very concretely, she researched the practises of the Brazlian Candomblé. Together with her excellent performers (e. g. Claire Sobottke, Thomas Proksch and Gaëtan Rusquet), she guides the audience into an open space, which hosts powerful dancing, but also enigmatic masking, odours and stories. Emergency Plan enables a mutual experience – subtle and yet strong.
On 08 August at 20:30 we invite to an open rehearsal. Tickets (free) are required.
