“¿Quién, si yo gritara, me escucharía entre las órdenes
angélicas? Y aun si de repente algún ángel
me apretara contra su corazón, me suprimiría
su existencia más fuerte. Pues la belleza no es nada
sino el principio de lo terrible, lo que somos apenas capaces
de soportar, lo que sólo admiramos porque serenamente
desdeña destrozarnos. Todo ángel es terrible.”
“Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the Angelic
Orders? And even if one were to suddenly
take me to its heart, I would vanish into its
stronger existence. For beauty is nothing but
the beginning of terror, that we are still able to bear,
and we revere it so, because it calmly disdains
to destroy us. Every Angel is terror.”
Duino Elegies, Reiner Maria Rilke
Where are the angels? Can beauty transform into something terrible? From the Rilke poem and the above questions, I have initiated a process of creation that connects to the concept of “Eruption and crisis management.”
To explore the processes that bringues us to a states of crisis, we use the shamanistic percussion “changoo.” This Korean instrument serves as a call in very different forms: the nature we can see, the spirituals.
The deep and energetic beat accompanies the dancer in his feat of invoking souls that can walk with her during the trip. Is it possible to dance with the angels? The trip to the beauty and the harmonic may face the terrible, devastating.
I would love to invite you to me new performance “Alleine mit dir”. This time I have the pleasure to work with the Korean drummer Bo-Sung Kim.
The performance will take place on the 17th of September at 20:00h
