Regina Rossi

Watch Out Tanz 2021/22 Familie

In a ‘concert-like’ atmosphere, three performers encounter the many facets of anger and experience how it can be transformed. Into something else…soft or creamy….

Sometimes it’s just about a feeling and how it changes. You experience an injustice, you get angry and then you have to decide. What do I do with it, what does my anger become?  

In her new production for young audiences, Brazilian choreographer Regina Rossi and her team develop a formal language in which the symbiosis of dance and music functions as a central and compositional motif. SCHLAGSAHNE is a concert and a choreography, but also the name of a band. With their instruments, voices and bodies, the band members transform the stage into a space charged with vibrations and rhythms, in which even the props produce sounds. They sing, play and dance their way through different facets and ambivalences of anger and warn: it can get really, really loud!
