Performance installation by dancers of Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company
F°LAB Festival warm-up
In Traces, the five ensemble members Felix Berning, Kevin Beyer, Anne Jung, Michael Ostenrath and Sam Young-Wright engage in a collaborative artistic investigation, connecting previous influences on the dance experience with Jacopo Godani’s explorations of movement, while adding their own choreographic contributions. The resulting performance installation resembles a palimpsest – ideas emerge, are complemented by new ones and subsequently overwritten by others. The remaining traces of past and present merge with the young choreographers’ ideas, creating a vibrating, experimental work.
