DURATION 60 minutes

Inspired by the structure of DVDs and the interactive possibilities posed by their “bonus material”, “Pieces of Me” uses this additional information accessory to break free from linear narrative patterns and generate new possibilities of perception. Just like the way a DVD of a film can be equipped with countless special features such as audio commentaries, making-of featurettes and interviews – a concept which not only fundamentally changes the way we experience what we see, but also spawns utterly individual narrative techniques. The ‘user’ no longer has a linear storyline to follow, but is able to navigate through story fragments on his own and make his own associations. What’s more, choreographer Rafaële Giovanola plays around with the concept of an open space. Audience members are able to choose their own perspectives and thus perceive themselves as participants, or commentators, who may create their own “bonus features”. CocoonDance was founded by Rainald Endraß and Rafaële Giovanola in Bonn in 2000. The Swiss choreographer Rafaële Giovanola was a member of William Forsythe’s Ballet Frankfurt for eight years and subsequently worked with Pavel Mikuláštik at the Choreographisches Theater in Bonn. Since 2004 the CocoonDance Company has directed and performed in the dance division of Bonn’s theaterimballsaal. http://www.cocoondance.de/
