›DER LETZTE SCHREI‹ // Ben.J Riepe Kompanie

 

The ensemble surrounding the Düsseldorf based choreographer Ben J. Riepe was founded in 2004. Since then it created various stage choreographies, performances, installations, film- and video work, which have been successfully shown internationally. In the last years the company toured in Poland, India, Bangladesh, the Netherlands and France and was awarded with numerous prices.

The Ben J. Riepe company exists of several permanent dancers and project wise collaborators from the fields of dance, music/composition and costume as well as installation and visual arts. Since 2010 the Ben J. Riepe company is running its own studio space in Düsseldorf, where current productions are rehearsed, training takes place and artistic research is represented.

The work of Ben J. Riepe is characterized by a strong and provocative poetic, between drama and irony that is interviewing beauty with critical statements. Choreography becomes more than a beautiful arrangement of moving bodies on stage and the company is pushing those boundaries of contemporary dance with every new work. Ben J. Riepe has developed his own vocabulary of dance and movement that searches consequently for new aesthetics and ways of expression; digging deeper in our consciousness and testing the edges of abstract but touching creations.

 

Ben J.Riepe is Affiliated Artist at Pact Zollverein during the 2014 and the 11th and the 12th of April we are presenting a performative installation on the theme of the nascent production “Der Letzte Schrei ” / ” The Dernier Cri”

›DER LETZTE SCHREI‹ ist ein Nachbild, eine Erinnerung an Schönheit und Künstlichkeit, an Blüte und Zerfall. Der Titel, versteht man ihn als geflügeltes Wort, gehört in die Welt der Mode – dort meint und verspricht er das schrille Leben, den Moment. Wörtlich genommen verkehrt er sich ins Gegenteil: Das Ende. Der Tod. Der letzte Laut vor der Stille.
Wie in den Vorgängerwerken der Ben J. Riepe Kompanie steht auch hier der Körper im Zentrum. Formgrenzen werden noch konsequenter strapaziert als bisher: ›DER LETZTE SCHREI‹ ist lokalisiert an den Rändern von Körper und Skulptur, Raum und Bewegung, Tanz, Musik und Bildender Kunst.

Atelier #51 Die Plattform für neue Kunst und Choreographie

 

Since 2002 PACT Zollverein has, in the framework of the ATELIER series, offered emerging and established choreographers, dancers, performers, fine artists and musicians from NRW, Germany and abroad a chance to present their work to the general public during a shared evening length programme. Each ATELIER edition gives rise to a hybrid programme featuring performance, art exhibits, music, dance, film, readings, photography, theatre, lectures and video art. Held throughout the building, the next edition will be on the 6th of December. Both completed works as well as projects under development are welcomed from artists working in all disciplines.
