Info

In Abecedarium Bestiarium the Berlin choreographer Antonia Baehr invited her friends to write compositions for her that are based on an ABC of extinct animals: D for Dodo, T for Tasmanian tiger, S for Steller’s sea cow… The authors choose an extinct animal that they feel a connection with. Thus choreographic miniatures are created in which they reflect their kinship to the selected animal, as well as their friendship with Antonia Baehr.

The audience follows Antonia Baehr in her solo from letter to letter – from D to Y, from F to N, etc. – while she explores the border area between humand and animal in various styles and modes. Abecedarium Bestiarium deals with beings that have fallen into oblivion and whose shimmering difference was not sufficiently effective to ensure the continuation of their species. Here the author and her friends are just as absent as the extinct animals. Their presence can only be imagined or evoked.
