Music for dance
The Worlds of Infinite Shifts’ @Beethovenfest Bonn
September 14 & 15, 2018
Three female dancers pass through various emotional and existential processes. They appear and disappear, rise up and succumb, cling and release. ‘ANNNA3. The Worlds of Infinite Shifts’ is the title of the new piece by choreographer Alexandra Waierstall, who enjoys a busy and productive collaboration with composer-pianist HAUSCHKA. They summon forth physical landscapes replete with toppling stabilities. Actions and situations seem pre-ordained by Fate. Scenarios arise on what might or should have been. The prepared piano, an elemental part of the stage set, creates the sounds and moods, rhythms and tempos. Physicality itself becomes an object of reflection.
