es ist nur ein Weinendes Stück

May 2011

 The questions ’what is beauty’-  ’does beauty give consolation’ and ’what makes our lives worth living’ started a line of questioning . In the working process, together with the dancers, we collected experiences of instances where beauty interfaced with an emotion that maybe can be identified as an experience of consolation.  Looking at those manifestations, banal and exalted, the physical transfomation, letting the material wander through the body a work came into being that meanders around the border of cliché, kitsch and beauty.
