dreams in a cloudy space @ Favoriten Festival Mannheim


What attitude do we adopt towards ageing and why does our capitalist-dominated society often define older bodies by their deficits? The poetic performance dreams in a cloudy space interweaves video and sound fragments from retirement homes and senior citizen’s facilities with an encounter between a 35-year-old and a 75-year-old dancer. In doing so, choreographer Antje Velsinger directs our attention away from the supposedly divisive and towards physical qualities beyond efficiency, towards what can be gained by listening to each other.
