Aus der Haut fahren

Duartion: approx. 80 Minutes
We rage. We lose our temper. We boil over. We burst. We go off the deep end… Geez, don’t get angry!
Anger is a motor. Anger is uncomfortable. Anger is threatening. Anger drives, liberates, destroys. Anger changes. As a basic human emotion, it is loaded with information. As an impulse generator, as a driving force, it provides a lot of energy. In the dance piece AUS DER HAUT FAHREN, six dancers confront the phenomenon of anger. Between theoretical debate and empirical self-experimentation, they explore what it means to be angry. A pleasurable and likewise uncomfortable play with a confrontational life energy that can bring change and destruction. In dialogue with their own and others’ anger, the stage becomes an experimental laboratory.
