  4. THE GUTS COMPANY - Das Fremde / ALIENIdentität

Das Fremde / ALIENIdentität


Together with two dancers, an actor and a musician, Dresden choreographer Johanna Roggan explores the foreign. It meets us everywhere, in the other and in ourselves, it isolates and distances us, it is always there: its rejection brings it into our midst. Can we locate it, design its structure, grasp it? In a haunting tableau of dance, sound and text, the guts company exposes itself to the foreign and tracks it down, in the everyday, in ideas, memories, utopias and visions. In the process, the questions and assignments remain in constant motion. Who is “Alien” and who belongs to it? Does the strangeness dissolve when you belong to it? A piece that exposes patterns of perception and opens up access to personal experiences of alienation.
