This is my last dance

Ein Duett von und mit Tabea Martin und Simona Bertozzi 


Inspiriert von Samuel Becketts Einakter Endspiel entwickelt Tabea Martin ein Duett, das den Umgang mit der eigenen Sterblichkeit erforscht. Die beiden Tänzerinnen wollen beide ihren letzten Tanz präsentieren und müssen sich dafür die Bühne teilen. Sie treten in einen Dialog darüber, wie man mit der Angst und Ausweglosigkeit angesichts des eigenen Endes umgeht. Die Partnerin wird dabei zur Komplizin, zur Rivalin und zum Spiegel der eigenen Angst. Ein Stück über den körperlichen Zerfall und die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Tod.


Die Basler Tänzerin und Choreografin Tabea Martin steht wieder selber auf der Bühne und entwickelt das Duo zusammen mit der italienischen Tänzerin Simona Bertozzi, die sie im Rahmen von Choreoroam London 2008 kennengelernt hat. Simona Bertozzi tanzte lange bei Virgilio Sieni und hat ihre eigene Tanzcompagnie in Bologna. 


‹This is my last dance› ist Teil einer Serie von Choreografien, die sich in den nächsten vier Jahren mit der Sterblichkeit, mit dem Endlichen und mit dem Unbekannten auseinandersetzen.

This is my last dance

A duet by and with Tabea Martin and Simona Bertozzi. 


Inspired by Samuel Becketts one-act play Endgame.


Two women are standing on an empty stage. They are searching for something and being confronted to their own end at the same time. Before they have even started dancing, the end is already present. Silence. Emptiness. Fragments. But with the humor it needs in order to keep going.

Beyond Indifference

Premiere

10.12.2016 Kaserne Basel (CH)

Tabea Martin’s newest 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? 

Two parallel worlds exist on stage. On one side a fantasy world - a concert evening with glamorous, sentimental rock bands named ‹Crystal Eternity›, ‹El Toro Rojo› and ‹Aquarium Lovers› – and on the other side reality, with which the fantasy world is in continuous conflict. We see people who are either thrown into reality or flee from the fantasy world. A continuous interaction, always with different underlying manipulative strategies. People in the room who are sometimes victims and sometimes perpetrators. Who is manipulating whom, and for what purpose? What is the goal? Success? Prestige? A manipulative struggle for attention results in which no one wins.

Which role does gender play? How many gender stereotypes are attached to children from a startlingly young age? Where does the gender divide begin and when does it start to exclude? How much courage does it take to stand up for your own ideas and needs and to realise them irrespective of society’s idea of what is ‹right› or ‹wrong›? ‹Pink for Girls & Blue for Boys› is a dance performance that deals with the gender question – great for young and old alike.

The more they are together, the more they feel alone. A performance about the tireless fight that something should happen in life. And the disillusionment that if something happens, then it’s not been the right thing. That the more you want to experience the less you experience. A performance that is trying to understand what drives people and how can we engage. A performance with three people who want to engage together. Who believe in the strength of being ‹together› and who finally fail in that wish or that attempt. It questions how we connect and communicate with others. It reflects on the impossibilities of these connections. Can one lose her or himself within the group? Can one give up on her or his individual thoughts? The performance shows a mechanism of tragedy and the inability to really meet one and another.

Lets say. ‹I Am A Dancer›. And now try to repeat that sentence for about an hour. See if content and thought changed. What is it? Why is it important? A frame. Does it make things clearer? Or more confusing? 

  

‹Duet For two Dancers takes a look at the anxiety of not living up to your own expectations, or those which your profession or society in general impose on you. A look at the fear of losing yourself. And at what remains when all skills disappear. The freedom to choose different professions and identities is often a reason for insecurity and doubt. The overload of choices creates a kind of stagnation. The inability to choose forces the body to rest. In that way ‹Duet For two Dancers poses questions about ‹being a dancer› as well as ‹not being a dancer›.
