We associate the upright gait with the human body. When the body axis turns 90 degrees and the head takes its place on the horizontal together with the trunk and the posterior, then another body emerges: that of the animal, the crawling child, the beggar …

In their joint work the two choreographers Petra Zanki and Britta Wirthmüller start from human physicality itself and go as in Vierfüsser (Quadrupeds) on their hands and knees. In their dense and precisely composed duet, they not only touch on the current images, patterns of perception, and movements associated with the body and its locomotion possibilities, but also open up their choreographic research to the formal aspects of the body as an ›object‹, to animalistic designs of the ›human as a stage animal‹.
