The very moment

A dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

The new dance piece by Munich choreographer Anna Konjetzky stages fragile and inefficient bodies and thematises our social interaction with them. As if in a game, five dancers compete against each other. They test their limits, work against muscle cramps, struggle with losing their balance, get out of step, fall, give up and start again. Inspired by youtube videos depicting stumbling drunks and weakened marathon runners, the ensemble takes the subject of falling out of context, while analysing and commenting on ist own physical progress.

The piece is in english with German subtitels (or other language).

MOVE MORE MORPH IT!

Dance Performance

Who, how and what can I be? This question is being asked by Munich choreographer Anna Konjetzky in her new piece. A body produces its own soundtrack for a journey across various identities, self-conceptions and fantastical characters. The sounds evolvingreveal the movement in a different light and make the situations change unexpectedly. The images, moods, and super powers, drawn from individual or collective memory, are playfully layered and recombined. Through big effects and subtle notes, perception is fooled and the curiosity towards a creative way of handling attributions is triggered.

A 30-minute dance performance for theatres, galleries, foyers, schools and many other spaces, with the possibility of subsequent discussions, mini or maxi workshops on dance and music (e.g. live scoring of movement, foley artist).

about a session

a dance piece by Anna Konjetzky

The term session means a meeting that is limited in time. Borders and rules are established, stretched or repealed in order to make new experiences and knowledge possible. The new piece by the choreographer Anna Konjetzky, who resides in Munich, addresses the about – and sessions as such. Being distant and being involved are not a contradiction. ABOUT A SESSION melds sensual experience and analysis, and is thus an act of contemplation about and with bodies. Can reflecting on or discussing arousal actually arouse? Can it stimulate the audience’s sexual fantasies? In the audience’s minds, a number of images of desire overlap in the contradiction or the doubling of word and image. In thinking about and with the body, analysis and sensual experience intertwine.

ABOUT A SESSION takes place in English.

TESTLAUF-durational

a brainstorming-playground

The set of TESTLAUF is a space, that invites people to hang out, lie down, chat, meet, dance, play, listen to music, etc…..and have a drink together.
After having done this work as a performance during SPIELART 2015, we continued questioning and developing it, and created a second, far more interesting version, as an ongoing installation: a brainstorming-playground: In this set we will propose and let go. Think and explore together, around how we use the space together, (this space concretely and this space as a model of an urban setting) how we create communities, how we share…. The space is open the whole day shifting from guided to not guided momentums.
