Nothing can express individuality better than a single human body. This evening demonstrates three individual dance solos from different cultural backgrounds, as a small, aesthetically attractive cosmos from our world.

A dancer gives insights into her everyday life. Her thoughts, dreams and visions are reflected on the stage. An interplay between dance and video art.

Employed since 1997 at the Vogtlandtheater Plauen, its artistic director in 1999/2000.

Eduard Gabia, Bukarest


Konzept und Performance:

Eduard Gabia



Eduard Gabia chose physical extreme conditions such as days of blindness and sleep deprivation as research field. The movement in the dark is synonymous with the ignorance that is enlightened by a short incidence of light, i.e. human understanding.

Eduard Gabia, born in Bucharest in 1979, trained at the »Floria Capsali« college of choreography and at the theatre and film academy in Bucharest. Since 1997, he has been working as a dancer with choreographers such as Sorana Badea and Mihai Mihalcea, and he is one of Romania's most innovative choreographers.

Uraufführung: 28.04.2002, Bukarest

Where is a person's external key to how they are inside? There are always several sides to a person who is difficult to recognise through physical and emotional patterns.

Lia Haraki was born in Limassol/Cyprus in 1975 and studied at the Laban Centre in London. In 2003, she founded the Omada Pelma company (now called Pelma) and she has choreographed numerous pieces. At the euro-scene Leipzig 2004, Lia Haraki guest starred with her solo »Evergreen«.
