Spinning, stumbling, falling – moving on. The Dresden dancer and choreographer Anna Till enters into an interplay of precision and loss of control. The circle serves her as a starting form and as a constant motor to continue elliptical movements in variations and to keep the whole body in motion. The dynamic spinning in the dance stands for the highest body control. At the same time it tells of ecstasy and euphoria. In the connection of the body between heaven and earth it creates access to another dimension. Dizziness, whirlpool, intoxication. A movement is started and endlessly continued, in large and small we draw our circles.
Five dancers together with a live band set the room in vibration. The performance eludes the central perspective. A space is divided. The relationship between the space surrounding the body and the body itself is the focus. A community is condensed in the circular form. Walked with – caught with. Inclusion and exclusion.
