infinite possibilities for new beginnings

Alexandra Waierstall and her seven dancers team up with visual artist Marianna Christo­fides and compo­ser HAUSCHKA to probe the geo­logical and eco­logical layers of (post-) humanism

Together they create a sonorous and physical landscape that gives rise to infinite possibilities for new beginnings.

Each sequence of movement draws on the preceding one as it subsides and is then rekindled with the energy of the ephemeral present in one flowing breath. In this way, “(T)here And After” is able to conjure up poetic moments of a new manmade era despite all of its warnings of mankind’s impending, self-induced demise.

“(T)here And After” ties in intimately with her latest pieces “A CITY SEEKING ITS BODIES” (2015) and „And here we meet“ (2016).
