• Marco da Silva Ferreira / Pensamento Avulso (Portugal)
03.November  19:30 - 20:30
Schauspielhaus / Große Bühne
  • Tanz

Six dancers create an ecstatic firework display of movement, between tribe and club culture – electrifying sound rhythms, pulsating dance and strong poses make the stage shake and break out of the heteronormative corset. Marco da Silva Ferreira poses the question of gender identities. How does one escape the clichés of masculinity and femininity? He uses the metaphor of the bison, which seems powerful because of its size, but is itself prey. An invitation to look behind the facade? Not to be dazzled? Powerful choreography alternates between contemporary dance, urban dance, ballroom dancing and hip-hop. It breaks up the usual gender relations, gives room for individuality and creates a dynamic interplay.

Marco da Silva is a star among the young generation of choreographers in Portugal, since he was voted best young artist in his home country in 2015. He has been unstoppable as he has worked his way into the international dance scene with pieces such as HU(R)MANOS and BROTHER.
