songs of absence

a dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

“Songs” and “absence”, the two main words in the title, are the content and program of this work. From a feminist perspective, “Absence” looks for the things that are missing, that are not visible, that disappear in the gaps, that want to be said or not, and questions whether absences are ‘just’ a not-wanting/not being able to see. 

”Songs” refers to a formal examination, with the traditional form and album structure of songs, as well as with contemporary performance structures per se. It’s about the composition, the physical, tonal, spatial composition of an evening that works like a polyphonic parkour: polyphonic – multiphonic, an autonomy and independence of the voices.
The result is a songbook, an album, an archive that tries to make the absent visible, to give it a name, to create a homage to the forgotten, the repressed.

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?“

hope/less

a dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

Does hope help us to shape a different future, or does it block us and leave us hanging in an inactive waiting loop? Hope, as an emotion directed toward the future, is something we know as individuals as well as a society. It can be a motor for change, a kind of tool for developing utopias; without hope, no change, no demands on the future, no thinking about what is possible. But hope can also be a state of passivity, a waiting, a stagnation and abdication of responsibility.

Anna Konjetzky’s new work “hope/less” moves between these two pools. Prior, she and her team conducted a series of interviews as a basis for the production; about hope, about its absence, about new starts, personal expectations, about the future and fears.
After my last piece “Über die Wut” I would like to deal with another social condition and currently hope and also its reverse hopelessness seems to me to be a present element in our society which is in upheaval. But what can hope do, where does it exist, where not, and where should it be turned into hopelessness? Or can radical hope mean radical change? (Anna Konjetzky)

Four dancers move in “hope/less” in a space divided by a net made of safety belts. This enables a vertical and horizontal space of movement on and under the net; the dancers can hang on the net, lie on it, pull themselves up, but also fall through the net – a fragile, floating physical condition. The German word hoffen (hope) comes from the Middle Low German word ‘hopen’, which means ‘to hop’. Translated physically into our stage setting, it could mean a springing, a slight tremor of foreboding, a waiting see-saw, but also a flipping, a tipping, a losing of balance. (Anna Konjetzky)

“hope/less” uses four bodies in a stretchable and malleable space to think about the potential of hope/ hopelessness as a visionary, future-shaping force, understanding choreography as a dialogical and utopian practice. The production follows on from Anna Konjetzky’s solo ” Über die Wut” (2021), which was specifically dedicated to female anger as a constructive force, a tool for change. Both works explore emotion as an individual feeling and as a social condition with a view to change’s ability to initiate fundamental and radical change.

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.
