Die deutsche Bühne
Who am I? Who do I want to be? Can one simply reinvent oneself by claiming to be someone else? What is a pig that moos? A pig or a cow? Who is the bear in the mirror addressing? I AM NOT YOU is an absurdly funny, pictorial and colourful production on the theme of identity for children from the age of 7 and all those older who wonder about such things and come up with the most surprising thoughts. Is dance actually theatre, and hasn’t theatre always said “I am, I am not”?
The Hamburg choreographer Antje Pfundtner and the Moks ensemble developed musical and associative scenes around the self and its relationship to the environment. They let the audience participate in their discoveries – but never on a supercilious note. Who belongs to me?
ANTJE PFUNDTNER is well known for her imaginative and solid way of pursuing first and last questions with her dance theatre and giving them twists and turns that make the audience think for themselves. Pieces by ANTJE PFUNDTNER IN GESELLSCHAFT (APiG) have been invited to the Tanzplattform Deutschland several times. In 2015 the jury selected NIMMER!, their first production for young audiences, for the Augenblick Mal! festival. In 2020 ICH BIN NICHT DU received the FAUST Prize for directing in children’s and young people’s theatre, and APiG was awarded the German Dance Prize for outstanding developments.
