Outro, the dance you will witness today, is the afterlife of a piece that already happened.
It is made for two, but danced by one - a duet that is performed solo; Outro is not moving on, it is not getting over. it lingers and wants to finds out what remains.
Outro is the continuation of „Eternal Betrayal“, a piece performed by Renan Alves Manhaes and Am Ertl in February 2021.
Eternal „Betrayal originally“ was made from a collection of movie scenes that all portray a revelation of a betrayal. In film plots, these scenes classically are followed by relief and reharmonization – a narration through which societal morals are revealed. Those often point towards heteronormative, cis-patriarchal ideas of order and loyalty. „Eternal Betrayal“ was driven by the desire to stay with brokenness instead of seeking moralist glue to fix with.
POINT OF NO RETURN
by Tanz den Widerstand
CREATED WITHIN A COLLECTIVE WORK DYNAMIC WHERE THREE PARTICIPANTS OF THE COLLECTIVE TOOK ON THE ROLE OF DIRECTION AND CHOREOGRAPHY COMBINING FRAGMENTS THAT MADE UP THE DANCE/PERFORMANCE PIECE.
THE GENERAL CONCEPT TO WORK ON IS THE COUNTERCULTURE AS A FORM OF RESISTANCE TO THE DEHUMANIZATION
THAT HIT US AS A SOCIETY ALL OVER THE WORLD, WHERE CURRENT ISSUES SUCH AS DIGITALIZATION OF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, WATER, AND IMMIGRATION CRISIS ARE SOCIOPOLITICS TOPICS THAT CANNOT BE TAKEN OUT OF OUR ARTISTIC POINT OF VIEW.
THE DANCE PIECE WAS CREATED FROM THE EXPERIENCES AND RESEARCHES OF THE DANCERS/CREATORS THAT WILL INTERPRET IN MOVEMENT AND COMPOSITION.
