lighting

a dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

“Lighting” – the lighting, the infecting, the igniting – is the title of Anna Konjetzky’s dance piece, which focuses entirely on the bodies of ten dancers in the empty stage space. Ten dancers form a shimmering, pulsating mass in which the pressure seems to swell constantly. Influenced by the countless images of protest movements around the globe, “Lighting” traces the spark, the moment of falling over, the discharge. Conceived as an increase and compression, a mass is gradually building up more and more power, energy and pressure. A diffuse, uncontrollable process is set in motion and escalates in the spectator’s mind.

“Lighting also has a double face for me as a title, because object and subject both undergo an active process. When I light something, the action is no longer in my hands, but the “burning” object now creates its own process, which is completely beyond my control.”
(A. Konjetzky)

und weil er sich dreht, kehrt der Wind zurück

und weil er sich dreht, kehrt der Wind zurück

World premiere in January 2013

und weil er sich dreht, kehrt der Wind zurück

a dance installation by Anna Konjetzky

Konjetzky’s dance installation sends the audience on a guided tour through Jerusalem. It is a city tour without dates and sights, an abstract journey, an associative course that creates an atmospheric cityscape with the means of dance, light, video and sound. A picture of narrow alleys, surprising passages, the rapid flashing of a dome, the quick glance at a group of dancers* inside, at a crumbling graffiti. In the installation, the viewer moves between – partly movable – walls, which sometimes open the way, sometimes cut it off, separate the dancers* from each other or divide the audience. In fast light cuts rooms, images, bodies appear and disappear again. Like layers, the individual media (choreography, video, installation) glide over each other and merge into a quasi-filmic cityscape.

“und weil er sich dreht, kehrt der Wind zurück” is my attempt to take up the principles of Jerusalem and translate them into my language. What is striking is that the city is not only a real existing place, but also an intellectual one. A place that creates in most people ad hoc longings, images, opinions, feelings, in this respect the piece is also a journey into the mind of every spectator.”
(A. Konjetzky)
