Spinner Light, Charles Washington/Pinkmetalpetal Productions (GB/DE)

Premiere | public discussion following on 30.04.

Performance Tanz

In his new work Spinner Light, Dresden-based Scottish choreographer Charles Washington explores the mystery of interpersonal relationships and how they can be influenced by colour and the influence of light.

Inspired by Kandinsky’s color theories, he questions how colors, as signals of interpersonal relationships, influence different emotions, what unconscious messages we exchange with each other, how color gives us satisfaction, like tension or other feelings. Spinner Light is a ritual of movement and colour that aims to create a state of harmony among the spectators and to generate a space for humanistic hope rooted in a connection of body and mind and collective interpersonal experiences in uncertain political times.

Pinkmetalpetal Productions is a choreographic platform for contemporary dance under the artistic direction of choreographer and dancer Charles A. Washington. Pinkmetalpetal Productions was founded with the aim of bringing together international artists and reflecting artistically on contemporary realities in a multidisciplinary way.
