Info

"What can one actually still dance?" Kat Válastur develops her works on the basis of this question and the philosophical context that it opens up. In her latest solo, GLAND, the choreographer and performer wanders between worlds: located between the stage and virtual space, she continues her exploration of the reality of the theatre space in the internet and thus questions the possibilities of contemporary dance.

On stage her dancing body plays with the laws of gravity and finds new ways to encounter the space. What seems known, familiar and habitual is alienated and exposed as just a reproduction of the surroundings we know. In the process Kat Válastur demands movements of the body that appear to contradict its nature and turns it into the generator of whole worlds: of utopias and fictions that could just as easily be reality.
