First, you prick up the ears. Songs of the Beatles were in the dance pieces of Sasha Waltz yet. For "noise", the first co-production of Sasha Waltz & Guests with the people's stage, to be selected by the choreographer to some of the songs from the "White Album" by the Beatles. To match the concept. Because the stage is a completely white semi-round, the later, sprayed and scribbled on.
In this sterile, pure world a flock of dancers in flowers moves white elegant jumpsuits (costumes: Bernd Skozig), only three performers are not dark dressed, what she is doing but still black sheep to disturbance factors. The Solo of a dancer at the beginning makes it clear: It is completely baseless beings who inhabit the art world, self-alienated, and empty inside. The woman raises abruptly head back, bend at the knees, pulling up the shoulder, twisting the hip. What at first seems like nervous Ticks, but the jerking and Twitching is getting stronger. The robotic or mechanical movements also varies in the group of scenes enduring. To distorted to hear overlapping sounds. Or a Beatles Song.
real life, real Drama
The title "the noise" is probably derived from the term "white noise". Here he means the background of the consumer world noise with its promise of a perfect world. Sasha Waltz is as in the previous production, "Exodos" to criticism, but remains in Striking plug. The first, the white part is slightly dystopian trains, where Waltz is aimed at our neo-liberal society. In short bursts, the dancers reveal their Fears and weaknesses.
But then approaches a digital voice assistant that has been transformed here into a Humanoid. "You're Special!" or "You have so much potential!" – the Mantras of positive thinking be prayed for. However, as tingling is a conversation with Siri, or Alexa may? Waltz not to exaggerate the scene to the garish Farce, disturbing this act by standardized existences. Also later, when the dancers washing tables and in plastic-wrapped mattresses to the stage in drag and a man from among the films fidgets.
We live in a world with a bunch of luxury problems, suggests Waltz. Real life, real Drama – this must have re-used the figure of the refugee. Aladino Rivera Blanco search as an asylum of running for his life, is an Interviewer on the heels of asking him Intrusive. The scene should probably be scolding the media.
Later, Blanca is hanging on a trapeze in the air, he speaks in the article of the Declaration of human rights, the to read to him a prompter, and tried wriggling to keep up until he crashes at the end.
Waltz is a continuation of the mythical Phase
The piece is divided into three parts that don't fit right together. In the middle part, which is intended to represent a Transition, a cleansing ritual. In a Wellness oasis, a man and a woman showers melt extensively, to their transparent sleeves. The cleaning squad is not wiped behind only the nymphs of the Badetempels, but sprayed the semi-circular wall with black color, to dark zerlaufende surfaces of the IIlusion of pure White destroy. The black painting refers to the third part, the will now show a Transformation.
When the dancers occur as a barbusiges collective in black skirts, which acts as a Waltz wool usher in the celebrations for International women's day with a Ritual. How archaic priests, the sisters seem, when you blow in Plexiglas tubes. And in fact, Sasha Waltz in here lives up to its mythical stage in which the dancers discovered inside the goddess. But if you go with the skirts swing, in a deep squat, then it is a sign of women's power, but toying with a decorative eroticism. The last, the black part is supposed to represent a return to the true feelings and rebellious bodies. But the Trip into the inner worlds created no riot, instead, the band throws in exaltations be to the dance verläppert at the end.More about
