Echo

 

Very little is known about the nymph Echo. Her story was adapted centuries ago to focus on Narcissus, yet it does not tell us everything: How can Echo be staged as a female myth, as a voice of a landscape and a fading body? How can a poetic narrative that is based on language be communicated through sound and movement? Starting with the mythological figure, the HÖRFRAU Kollektiv will take Ovid´s story as a point of reference and create its performance from Echo´s perspective. Here, Echo is not only a gendered figure or embodiment but also an artistic tool and phenomenon present on all levels of the performance and production. The HÖRFRAU Kollektiv will investigate Echo´s many facets and in doing so reflect on their own dramaturgical and choreographic practice.

GLOWING current moods

 

Based on the topics of self-presentation, Sophia Hörmann creates a setting in which she literally slides through spheres and emotions. Thus, sliding across her own personal laboratory, she focuses on the material and emotional character of the surface she perceives, touches, enters. Aesthetic features like the furnishings of the space with artificial materials and sounds, gleaming effects and smooth surfaces, flowing movements and wet skin are the characteristics of GLOWING current moods.
