The Worlds of Infinite Shifts

Three dancers heroically go through emotional and existential processes again and again.

They appear and disappear, awaken and surrender, hold tight and let go. 
Determined by their own limits, they embody powerful velocity or extreme physical 
slowness, cut the space full of uncertainty or celebrate the body with all its freedoms.

“ANNNA³. The Worlds of Infinite Shifts” is the name of the current work by Düsseldorf choreographer Alexandra Waierstall, who, since the group piece “A CITY SEEKING
ITS BODIES” (2015), has been engaged in an intensive and fruitful collabo­ration with Düsseldorf composer and pianist Volker Bertelmann aka HAUSCHKA, and is now working with French lighting designer Caty Olive for the first time.

Together with the dancers Sita Ostheimer, Anna Pehrsson and Karolina Szymura, 
they interweave movements with repetitive and varying materialities, sound and mood relationships and create physical land-scapes of the past and the future, 
of archaeology and utopia. In several 
breaths, the bodies become places of re-flection, connectedness and resistance.
In these constantly changing and fluctuating situations, that which has been fatefully fore-shadowed appears and
 introduces scenarios that reveal what could have been or what could have become.
