Von dem Ursprung, dem ersten Impuls oder dem Bewegungsansatz ausgehend, erforscht sie die sich konstant und bisweilen minimal verändernden räumlich erfahrbaren Körper. Beschleunigungen und Richtungswechsel durch Einzelne ausgelöst, rufen Reaktionen hervor, ermöglichen Entwicklung. In ihrer choreographischen Recherche untersucht Anna Konjetzky die Veränderungspotentiale. „Wir müssen uns verändern und wir tun das kontinuierlich – was aber passiert in dem Moment, wenn wir eine andere Richtung, ein anderes Tempo einschlagen, den „Sprung“ wagen?“

ÜBER DIE WUT

A dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

WUT (“ANGER”) is written in LED letters above the stage where the dancer Sahra Huby is acting important, flexing her muscles, opening her mouth wide, squeezing her eyebrows together, baring her teeth. Anger grips the body and enlarges the body; we spit blood, we foam at the mouth, anger takes our breath away and takes possession of our muscles, eyes, and voice, changes and distorts them, and lets our body appear grotesque, threatening, aggressive, but also humorous and comical – and so, on the wall behind Sahra Huby celebrities and politicians flicker and flutter, but also cartoons. In her new solo piece “On Anger” Anna Konjetzky investigates this emotion as an individual emotion and as a condition produced by social structures.
An entire arsenal of personal, political, and pop cultural gestures of anger are dissected and thoroughly examined. Huby slows down, fragmentizes, rhythmizes, elongates the movements, and in doing so she gives them an unexpected beauty and elegance, only to rage and erupt again in the next moment. Images of revolts, protests, and demonstrations appear, and the dancer adopts them and makes them her own. Anger is also a constructive energy, as an engine and impulse for social change. Iconic gestures – the raised fist of the Black Power Movement, wrists crossed over one another, the middle finger – proclaim the assault on unjust conditions, an attack on the powers that be, on existing hierarchies and structures.
“On Anger” examines the potentiality of anger – especially women’s anger – with movement, images, music, and texts. On this stage Sahra Huby is an angry woman, and she also brings onto the stage all those angry women from the present and the past as witnesses to be at her side – from Clytemnestra to Joan of Arc, and all the way to Rosa Parks and Audre Lorde. Together with them the work poses the question about a fundamental and radical transformation.
Anna Konjetzky has been creating dance pieces and dance installations since 2005; their contents and physicality are marked by a socio-political examination. This artist has received numerous awards for her works, which she presents all over the world, and she works and collaborates with a huge spectrum of artists, locations, and festivals.

Was passiert in meinem Kopf, wenn ich nachdenke? Ist das, was ich sage, was ich denke? Werde ich zu dem, was ich denke oder denke ich, was ich bin? Wie hängen mein Denken und meine Wahrnehmung der Welt zusammen? Wie funktioniert mein Denken und wo funktioniert es am besten: im Sitzen, im Gehen, auf dem Klo, im Gespräch mit Freunden? Denke ich allein mit dem Gehirn, oder denkt auch mein Körper? Denkt mein Po? Und wann wird ein Wort einfach zu Klang, zu Musik? Gemeinsam mit der Tänzerin Sahra Huby und dem Ensemblespieler Andrej von Sallwitz erforschen die Choreografin Anna Konjetzky und ihr Team das Nachdenken: zwischen Körper und Kopf, Tanz und Text, Alltag und Spiel. Dabei führen sie Tanz, Bewegung, Live-Zeichnen, Video und das gesprochene Wort zusammen und nehmen das Publikum mit auf eine Reise durch das eigene Denken und verschiedene Wahrnehmungs- und Ausdruckswege.

DIVE – a celebration

a Dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

The body is a political venue: the body symbolizes power, impotence, status and affiliation. With or via our bodies, we create our own social and cultural identities – just like we apply them to other people. Individuals are classified into groups, societies divided into segments. Homogenous spaces emerge that exclude the other while leaving individuals in the infinite cycle of peer groups and filter bubbles. DIVE is located in this field of tension between making difference visible and practicing community; it also develops identity as a permanent construction and deconstruction of overlapping and parallel events as well as self and foreign attribution. Individual protagonists’ perceptions and evaluations wander, shift and become a costume or a skin that cannot be cast off. Together with the seven dancers, Anna Konjetzky samples, mixes and scratches stereotypes and identities choreographically, musically and linguistically until a new collective beat emerges. DIVE celebrates heterogeneity and addresses questions of a commonality that is not based on similarity but rather exists despite – or precisely because of – differences.

This dance evening in English is created by a mixed crew of dancers from South Africa and Germany.

WE ARE HERE

A Dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

In her new piece, a world premiere for the Saarland Staatsballet, Anna Konjetzky deals with the concept and feeling of imminent danger. A game of perception, an interplay of music and dance and how they shift against each other – and it is a game of movement and motionlessness. It is also about getting closer, which is perceived as a danger.
