bodieSLANGuage at Theater Freiburg - Theater Freiburg - Freiburg

Dear friends and colleagues,We are happy to announce the upcoming performances of bodieSLANGuage, a dance performance by matanicola and the progressive wave in Theater Freiburg, Germany.Friday, 08.05.15 at 20:00Saturday, 09.05.15 at 20:00Sixteen hands are the protagonists of bodieSLANGuage.They unite, communicate, create worlds and drift apart.Mixing contemporary dance, Sign Language and gestures from pop culture and everyday life, three choreographers explore with a group of eight international Deaf and hearing performers the possibilities of expression of the hands.They translate music and sound through the body and Sign Language into physical exploration. Their gestures and facial expressions lead the spectators through a saturated audiovisual journey; a celebration of cultural manifestations, a multilingual landscape, quoting, mixing and transforming cultural codes.bodieSLANGuage is a production by the Berlin based choreographers duo matanicola (Nicola Mascia & Matan Zamir) and the Sign Language interpreter and performance artist the progressive wave (Gal Naor), who collaborate for the first time in this interdisciplinary dance performance.Concept / Direction / Choreography: Nicola Mascia, Gal Naor, Matan ZamirWith: Bráulio Bandeira, Jan Michael Kress, Laura Levita Valyte, Maureen Lopez Lembo, Nicola Mascia, Gal Naor, Jija Sohn, Simo VassinenSoundtrack Design: Tomer RosenthalLight Design: Avi Yona Bueno (Bambi)Audio / Visual Interaction: Safy EtielCostume Design: Saša KovacevicTechnical Direction: Fabian BleischProduction Direction: Annett HardegenPublic Relations: Nora GoresPhotography: Benedikt J.
