moscow dance agency
PO.V.C.TANZY (the name stands for "entirely internal free dancesİ in Russian) is one of the first dance theatres in Russia. Every dancing actor in the company has his own role, goal and ways of expression. Life line and reason are knitted into the thin web of the performance. Movements are born in the present and die in the past changing each other as leaves.
"Movements leave the body as leaves leave the tree. Cold. Then warmer and warmerş.. Again cold...Time has changed. We are dancing to get warm... Our dance becomes more and more mature, our motivations and behaviour - more and more reasonable; and our rare meetings - more and more significant..."
"Nachtspruenge" (32min) ( Night jumps with parachute)
The choreography was developed by Katja Wachter for and in cooperation with the company "Kipling".
"Nightjumps" is dealing with the topic of leading and following, the different mechanisms in submitting to orders.
Obedience is one of the fundamental elements in the structure of social life and determines our actions much more than we often realize.
On the one hand the piece is based on observing everyday human behaviour, on the otherhand on Stanley Milgram's experiments on obedience to authority.
The choreography does not, however, describe the experimental assemblage or devides into offender and victim, but potrays the various ways of leading and following within the group and shows the passing through different levels of manipulating each other.

The Nest of Chooe 30 min
...Nothing is to be done about it but the way Chaplin walked or Einshtein stuck out his tong exist inside us. When space and time betray each other we try to catch up with ourselves.
There might be a place where we can have enough time to think about it. Probably this place is not far away. It's probably very close. Well, it feels near. We stop, look around, slap ourselves on the forehead or pat our pockets as we were suddenly asked for a ticket by a strict conductor.
At this moment thunder and a bolt of lighting strike, the mobile goes off, our shadows vanish and the trolleybus departs. Again we fall out from the nest which we didn't get round to making.
And Chooe, who is that?

This piece is the newest part of the trylogy "Mystical Sounds in snorting night". All of these three parts are independent but together they form a different whole. In my trylogy i am dealing with the everlasting human questions aiming to use the most intriguing and abstract forms for myself. My intention is to give the audience some space, therefore enabling them to observe and interpret my work personally. Renate Keerd
