Chicken&Egg examines the influence of individual components on dance as a process. How does it change when movement qualities and rhythm change and new information is permanently added? Contradictions between form and experience, spontaneity and precision as well as strength and fragility arise and are integrated.
Volver means returning. In the piece, a dialogue between body, space, need and situation is created. In the attempt to change memories and structures, the dancers give themselves up to a place of unending transformation.
Both solos are presented in one event and relate to each other – but they are two independent works.
"Volver" - choreography, dance: Dakota Comín
Music: Carlos Andrés Ortéga
Franziska Doffin studied at Tanzfabrik Berlin, at the University of Malta and received her Bachelor's degree at Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy as a dancer and choreographer in 2019. One piece she created during her studies was "Kocka", which was danced several times in Budapest and Moscow in 2018. She received the Erasmus+ scholarship for her solo "Shirt Bird". As a dancer she has worked with Willi Dorner, Marcela Giesche, Tijen Lawton and Kadir Memis, as a choreographic assistant with Grupo Oito, as a translator with Constanza Macras, and she has toured with Lina Saneh and Rabin Mroué as a technician. Franziska was on her way to becoming a visual artist before she devoted herself to dance, and so her way of working today is still between form and empathy.
