VOID – aus dem nichts

Helge Letonja

Rien ne va plus. Where do we go? How? With whom? Where there is nothing, there can be anything. Into this vacuum, “void” introduces fantasies of physical encounters with the nothingness. With their bodies and voices, one female and four male dancers sketch outlines into the white of the open moment. Between inflation and deflation tragedy meets comedy, pausing turns into hyperactivity, choreographic constellations arise and vanish.

Together with the vocal artist Christian Wolz and the drama advisor Marion Amschwand, the choreographer Helge Letonja creates a sensory world of dance and azione musicale in the composition of which Wolz exclusively utilizes the human voice. Breath and vibrations become sound, moods turn into movements – creating links to the strange liberty of absolute presence.
