Tabea Martin’s work, ‹Beyond Indifference›, questions our perception of truth. What can still be trusted in a world in which we can no longer trust anyone? How do we deal with continually being manipulated?
There will be 100 artists from all over the world, coming from 10 European and extra-EU countries and from different Italian regions: 23 companies, with 8 national premieres, which will alternate in 3 theatres in the city and the metropolitan area of Turin and in urban spaces.
New support agreement
According to the terms of the support agreements, the municipalities and cantons grant financial assistance to the companies for their artistic creation, operations and other activities at local, regional and national level, while Pro Helvetia’s contribution goes towards international tours. The support agreement provides the companies with greater planning security and also more flexibility, as it enables them to take on short-term commitments and projects without having to re-apply for support each time. This strengthens their negotiating position on the international market. The financial backing also gives them more leeway to develop new productions and formats. With the conclusion of a support agreement, the sponsoring parties for their part signal their trust in the artistic and organisational qualities of the dance or theatre company concerned.
Last Dance on tour
‹For the existential darkness and loneliness the choreographers find a beguiling picture. They dance on a shiny black, highly reflective dance floor. As a result, they are never alone. Like in a dance of the death-painting, the characters are pursued by their own reflection and fate. In addition to this symbolic power, this mirrored floor is also pure aesthetic pleasure. He lends weightlessness to this last dance.›

‹Martin and Bertozzi have choreographed a touching, very personal dance evening. Hopefully the title can not be taken at face value.›
Dominique Spirgi, TagesWoche Basel, 02.02.2018
‹(...) the dance (is) powerful, gripping, meaningful, as we know it from Tabea Martin, and with these little additions of subtle humor›
