„Being distant and being involved are not a contradiction.“ I experienced that in a very similar way (…) The four of them can definitely move, and when they dance their sexy twists in unison, or all four of them solo at the same time… that’s powerful. This is amplified by Sergej Maingardt’s corresponding sound collage; in it, contact microphones on the dancing bodies integrate their movements. Thanks to her, projections and texts, action and a lecture meld into a multimedia event. A sometimes fascinating session is created with many rhythms that are interrupted at an increasing rate.
With her small but excellent group, Anna Konjetzky dared to address a subject that is usually swept under the rug; she did it by using a “session” as a protective framework that the audience was drawn into.
