Two weeks of danced com- mitment in Potsdam
Physical and political freedoms are the focus of the stage program of the Potsdamer Tanztage 2017. With "Hieronymus Bosch: Garden of Desires”, Canadian choreographer Marie Chouinard is inspired by another genre as she was in "Henri Michaux: Mouvements”.
As a warning against the deadly sin of lust, the free-floating triptych, translated into movement, is hardly to be interpreted but rather as a vision of lived anarchy. With her piece "Unrelated”, Daina Ashbee, the second choreographer from festival partner Canada, lends cultural awareness to the tragedy experienced by indigenous Canadian women. Eko Supriyanto also promises a kind of catharsis: In "Balabala”, five young Indonesian women fight for equality by performing traditionally male-dominated war dances. In the meantime, the only open question remains which acute, politically-themed slogans the audience will inscribe on the blank banners in Anne Collod’s new version of Anna Halprin’s "The Blank Placard Dance (1967)”. And of course there’ll be a chance to let off a lot of steam in festival workshops, which include the repertoires of Pina Bausch and Trisha Brown.
