‘Die Verwandlung’

The metamorphosis investigates the tumult and stress of a body in change. This poetic and timeless representation presents the transformation of an abstract entity into an individual with many faces. Dancers bring aluminum blankets to life that reveal a multitude of forms and thus become carriers of narrative qualities. The Verwaldlung refers to the mutations and transformations that human beings undergo to overcome obstacles in their path. Sophie Mayeux received the ITs choreography prize 2016 for this performance.

Concept and choreography: Sophie Mayeux. Dance: Sophie Mayeux and Simon Caillaud.
