Saskia Hölbling / DANS.KIAS
A mesh of robes stretches between the cast-iron columns of the historical venue. This network builds the frame and base for a „world machine“, what the Viennese Saskia Hölbling likes to call her choreography for four performers. The dancers meet the spacial installation by Gudrun Lenk-Wane with utmost dexterity while manoeuvring themselves through the tricky terrain. In the group’s cohesion and drifting apart powers emerge which, changing between intimacy and threat, keep the image of „the other“ in constant movement. Accompanied by a great soundscape, composed by Wolfgang Mitterer, this dynamic is always moving on the verge of collapse.
