An interdisciplinary dance, art and research project by and with dancers with Parkinson’s and the Tangente Company. Freefalling, falling over, falling apart – raid, applause and in any case an unusual project. This project combines a kaleidoscope of movements and life experiences in a sensitive and humourous performance.
personal landscapes is the further development of the Parkinson’s dance project with TanzTangente as well as a creative research process. Material developed through improvisation is the foundation of the choreography. Here we are told a story of moving daily challenges, the enjoyment that comes through dance, the pleasure of touch, uncontrollable curiosity, the dare to cross limitations and the awe at how some things are still possible.
“The leaves fall, fall as from afar, as if withered in heavens distant gardens; their falling is a sad sign. And in the end earth itself will fall from among the stars in space. We all fall. This hand will fall. And see the other: it is as the rest.”
Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by © John H. Campbell)
