In the Heart of the Heart of another Moment

Alexandra Waierstall

IN THE HEART OF THE HEART OF ANOTHER MOMENT is a unique creation developed in the presence of the sculptor „Arena“ (a 66-foot-high modular grandstand by Rita McBride) and performed in its absence.

It is a work developed for a series of multiple cities with a changing number of dancers performing, each work becoming an edition of sorts, a bespoke work for and with each location.  Developed with a dynamic range of finely attuned dancers, against a musical score (music: Volker Bertelmann, light: Caty Olive) it reflects the spirit, the democratic principles and different modalities of the „Arena“.

In this new work for Düsseldorf the rapidly changing and technological developments of our times is confronted with a deep concept of single bodies as part of a group touching upon themes of attentiveness and human intuition. The work emphasizes the delicate interplay of the body’s softness and strength, moving us as contemporary societies into the future.
