ALL THAT MATTERED

von Sergiu Matis und Madalina Dan

10.06.2017 19:00 Uhr | @ Kunstkraftwerk

Das Ballett Dornröschen bildet in voller Länge den Rahmen der Arbeit von Madalina Dan und Sergiu Matis. Die beiden rumänischen Tänzer reißen Löcher in die Üppigkeit des klassischen Balletts und nähern sich ihrer eigenen Ballett-Geschichte. Die Diskrepanz zwischen der gesellschaftlichen Realität im Rumänien der 90er Jahre und den opulent-überladenen königlichen Märchengeschichten der meisten Ballette, die Madalina Dan und Sergiu Matis im Zuge ihrer Ausbildung lernten, prägt dieses Dornröschen-Cover. Das Ballett, das in 20 Tagen aus der Erinnerung der Körper zweier Tänzer an früheren Trainingsfrust entstand, thematisiert nicht zuletzt die prekären Arbeitsbedingungen von Tänzern und Choreografen heute.
