Dance from North Rhine-Westphalia
Following years’ long collaboration within the European Dancehouse Network, at the invitation of Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Stary Browar will become the principal centre of the dance program of the season in Poland. Throughout October will we host in Poznań a large number of performances and art projects involving Polish and German artists.
Of worldwide acclaim, the Mouvoir Theatre is an international group of dancers, actors and musicians from Cologne led by Stephanie Thiersch. The group’s leader and artistic director is educated both in classical and contemporary dance and in cultural studies, which bears an interesting impact on the artistic content of her performances.
The Magic Egg is a poetic play of a dance theatre which is deliberately balancing between an animated film and traditional mythology. The show groups five extraordinary dancers from different parts of the world: Africa, Asia and Europe. They tell a tale of a small, dirty and sick planet whose dwellers try a number of diverse solutions to save it. Serious reflection on the world and nature is interspersed here with the tricks of the curious creatures inhabiting the planet. All the nonsensical plot and the choreography of the play are only seemingly incongruous. The choreographer consistently uses the idiom of children’s imagination and creates a performance that invokes the abstract thinking of the youngest. The show offers the audience a lot of freedom of interpretation; its huge dose of extraordinary humour, greatly imaginative costumes and funny animations makes it attractive for the youngest spectators.
The performance was nominated to the Cologne Theatre Prize 2010.
The consistent avoidance of tacky effects and the creation of indeterminate space makes ZauberEi a master production, with a soft music by Harald Zieglers, charming animations by Timothée Ingen-Hous, costumes by Sabine Schneider, and the participation of amazing dancers.
